LOS ANGELES - As the Oscars unfolded, a bevy of bloggers broadcast barbs live on the Internet about the award show's highlights and lowlights. From the seemingly endless montages to Cameron Diaz's cinematographer slip-up, the 80th annual Oscars weren't lacking for blog fodder. Here's some of the best of this year's Oscar liveblogging:

___

5:30 p.m.: "Check it out — it's an animated opening featuring all the films they stuff in the crappy categories! Yes, there's 'The Incredible Hulk' — what award is that film up for?"

___

5:41 p.m.: "First award! Jennifer Garner, who needs a bobby pin, is awarding the Oscar for best costume design. It goes to Alexandra Byrne from 'Elizabeth: The Golden Age.' That woman deserves an Oscar for shortest speech!"

___

6 p.m.: "We love Amy Adams, but without the princess get-up and dancing vermin, this number is a little West Covina Christian Community Center presents 'Seven Brides for Seven Brothers.'"

6:09 p.m. "I'll go out on a limb and suggest this is the closest The Rock ever gets to an Oscar."

6:29: "It's Owen Wilson! Heyyy, buddy ... You look great! How's it going? You OK? Need anything? What? We are not walking on eggshells around you!"

___

6:31 p.m. "That's it. The Oscars need translators. The filmmaker behind 'Les Mozarts des Pickpockets' launched into tearful French when accepting his award for Best Live Action Short Film, just minutes after Javier Bardem delivered half his acceptance speech for Best Supporting Actor in Spanish."

___

6:32 p.m.: "I don't care if it's Jerry Seinfeld ... can we NEVER EVER have an animated character present an award on a show again?"

___

6:38 p.m.: "Wow! There's our first big upset of the night: Tilda Swinton for Best Supporting Actress. I truly didn't see that coming. And neither did she! That was some genuine shock, right there. And now we know her agent has the butt of an Oscar, so there's that."

6:47 p.m. "Both Jon Stewart and Josh Brolin talk to Nicholson in the crowd, and Jack talks back as if anyone can hear. You are powerful, Jack, but not that powerful."

___

7:10 p.m.: "YESSS. Marion Cotillard takes it for 'La Vie En Rose'! So well-deserved. Unfortunately, unlike Javier Bardem's speech, there are no French speakers at my mini-Oscar party to translate exactly what it is she's saying ... something angels and glitter on her face."

___

7:32 p.m.: "Nicole Kidman's face-stylists really gave her a great look tonight, didn't they? Engaged, content — just right. Can't wait to see what they cook up for the afterparties!"

___

7:33 p.m.: "I was going to say something nice earlier about how the pacing of this year's Oscars felt so much better than normal, but I might have to take that back. We've clearly entered the notorious dead spot — not even presenting Best Actress way early can prevent it. However, the actors in the room really do seem moved by the honorary Oscar presentation. Or maybe they're just paid to look like that."

___

7:56 p.m.: "Let me just say this for the record and get it out of my system: THERE AREN'T A BILLION PEOPLE WATCHING THIS. THERE ARE NOT. DON'T BELIEVE IT. They'll be thrilled to get 50 million Americans watching it. Thrilled. There aren't 950 million other people around the world aching to watch this. Believe it."

___

8:01 p.m.: "Cameron Diaz can't pronounce cinematography. Perhaps next year they'll be nice and give her Picture. Or better yet, they could be cruel and give her a new category like Most Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious Performance."

___

8:02 p.m.: "Hilary Swank looks really harsh. She introduces the 'In Memoriam' montage. Tears! Heath! Deborah Kerr! Other random legends! No Brad Renfro poor form."

___

8:24 p.m.: "Harrison Ford slowly introduces the nominees for Best Original Screenplay. The award goes to Diablo Cody for 'Juno,' in the least surprising moment of the night. But I loved 'Juno,' so yay! P.S. Diablo, they're called undergarments ... for next time your dress blows open in front of a billion people."

___

8:33 p.m. "The second-least-unpredictable award of the night went to, in fact, Daniel Day-Lewis. Helen Mirren didn't even look like she opened the envelope."

___

8:45 p.m.: "Wait a second — it's over?? There were 12,000 montages! That's impossible!"
