Jeff Bridges arrives to heap warbled praise upon the best actress nominees. Natalie Portman wins. Her speech is nice, and Annette Bening is even nicer not to pull a Kanye West on her. Meanwhile, Sandra Bullock and her suddenly strange-ish face most excellently toast the best-actor nominees, which only reminds us all that she needs another movie soon, please. Colin Firth wins and gives an acceptance speech that has a lot of class, humor, and some wit. Basically, what we'd expect from a Colin Firth acceptance speech.
