Almost painless!

Since I haven't a clue as to broadcast times around the world outside the United States (I'm lazy), I won't give anything away except to say that Allison Krause performed two songs from Cold Mountain that were exquisite, and that the numbers performed from The Triplets of Belleville and A Mighty Wind were great as well. Everyone behaved themselves and dressed quite conservatively and with taste (YMMV, of course). Billy Crystal was funny as usual, though a wee precious at times. For the most part, the winners remembered Paul Hogan's 'three Gs' from some years back: "Be Grateful, be Gracious, Get OFF."

Not bad for an awards program.
