Argo, about the Hollywood-State Department collaboration to sneak American diplomats out of Iran, won for best drama and Ben Affleck for best director. Former President Bill Clinton even made a cameo, introducing Lincoln, prompting the best Amy Poehler-Tina Fey riff of the night: "That was Hillary Clinton's husband." "Bill Rodham Clinton!"
4. The red carpet gets redder: Red dresses ranging from orangy corals to deep burgundies ruled the red carpet, with Claire Danes, Jennifer Lawrence, Zooey Deschanel, Marrion Cottilard, Jennifer Garner, and Naomi Watts rocking the hue. And the fashion don't of the night? The weird, doily lace worn by Sienna Miller and Jennifer Lopez.
5. Even celebrities get sick: Meryl Streep was said to have missed the awards show because she was home sick. ("She has the flu and I hear she's amazing in it," Poehler assured us.) Jennifer Lawrence and Hugh Jackman were also reportedly suffering from the flu, but that didn't stop them from picking up their awards for best actress in a comedy and actor in a drama, respectively. Do they not dole out flu shots in Los Angeles?
