Another rousing but grueling Academy Awards ceremony is in the books. The King's Speech took home most of the top categories while Inception pulled in the technical awards. Each film earned four wins, tying for the most.

This year's Oscars was yet another entertaining event -- some highs and some lows. In abbreviated and alphabetical form, here are our most memorable moments from Sunday's telecast:

  • Anne Hathaway's solo duet poking fun at Hugh Jackman
  • Appearance by the legendary Kirk Douglas
  • Auto-tuned musical segment with dialogue from various films
  • Billy Crystal's appearance making everyone wish he was host
  • Bob Hope appearing on-stage in video hologram form
  • Christian Bale's win and shaggy beard
  • Colin Firth's win and witty acceptance speech
  • End-of-show appearance of all the winners with kid singers
  • Four wins by 'The King's Speech' including Best Pic
  • Four wins in technical categories for 'Inception'
  • Gwyneth Paltrow's off-key singing performance
  • James Franco in drag
  • James Franco's less-than-stellar performance as host
  • Melissa Leo dropping an F bomb during her acceptance speech
  • Notable memorial snubs: Corey Haim, Barbara Billingsley, Peter Graves
  • Opening video segment inserting Franco and Hathaway into films
  • Pregnant Natalie Portman's win and emotional speech
  • Randy Newman's funny and self-deprecating speech
  • Scarlett Johansson's messy 'bed head' hairstyle

And now for the full list of winners and nominees.
