Some of you might say Sacha Baron Cohen, as The Dictator, throwing an urn of “Kim Jong-il” all over a well-dressed and visibly peeved Ryan Seacrest. But we’re talking about the action inside the Kodak Theater. During a night full of funny bits (The Wizard of Oz focus group, courtesy of Christopher Guest’s Best in Show gang; Rose Byrne and Melissa McCarthy taking shots of Grey Goose), moving speeches (Octavia Spencer’s acceptance; Meryl Streep’s ode to make-up artist J. Roy Helland), and utter ridiculata (was there anyone who loved Angelina Jolie’s leg more than Team Jennifer?), it’s difficult to choose one moment that’s most memorable.

That’s why we picked a total of 19 notable moments – check out which ones stuck out most to us here. But, PopWatchers, tell us: Which moment – good, bad, or ridiculous – was most memorable for you?
