Worst: Ben Affleck and Anne Hathaway get forgetful
There were a lot of jokes about forgetting to thank people and a lot of forgetting to thank people. Ben Affleck somehow left out his producers, one of who is some guy named George Clooney, who you might have read about. Fortunately, Affleck's wife, Jennifer Garner, was presenting and got to do his dirty work. But Anne Hathaway probably didn't need to hijack the "Les Miserables" Best Picture time to mention her manager. Hugh Jackman jokes he'd be sending his wife up to mention anybody he forgot, but he didn't need to. And, in one of the better moments of the night, Lena Dunham paid tribute to the phenomenon of award night forgetfulness by thanking Chad Lowe, so famously forgotten by ex-wife Hilary Swank neigh on so many years ago.
