Ben Stiller, eh? Apparently it was Sacha Baron Cohen who was supposed to do an Avatar sketch, but it was banned because it might offend director James Cameron. That would have at least given the night a pulse: the most controversial moment was when a short film director totally got Kanyed by a drunk woman, who we hope is involved somehow in the winning movie. Awkward afterparty, for sure.

Still, Cameron got his when Katherine Bigelow and The Hurt Locker blew up Avatar with golden statues. Relive the glory in our liveblog.
