Sacha Baron Cohen hogged the limelight, turning the AGM for the Hollywood film industry into a promotion for his new film by spilling Kim Jong-il’s ashes over the red carpet – but not Halle’s Berry’s chest (again). Another landmark was scored by Christopher Plummer, who at 82 became the oldest actor to win an Oscar, for his performance in The Beginners. Octavia Spencer for getting a gong for her role as the pastry chef in The Help, offering: “I’m freaking out … I’m sorry, I love you … I’m sorry, I love you.” Which might explain why the best actors work with the best scripts…
