What a golden night in Tinseltown!  A-listers were out in full force and all a flutter for the 82nd Annual Academy Awards. The theme of the evening — true Hollywood glamour. From a great opening musical number by Neil Patrick Harris to Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin's hilarious co-hosting spot, the night seemed to go off without a hitch!

The major upset of the night — The Hurt Locker beating out Avatar for Best Picture. It was a battle of the exes between Kathryn Bigelow and James Cameron.
