That’s a wrap, folks.

The 85th Academy Awards had plenty of highlights that delighted an audience of over one billion viewers worldwide, but it wasn’t short on missteps either.

Between Hollywood A-listers ballroom dancing and a rare performance by the sensational Barbara Streisand, Oscar definitely did not disappoint.

This year’s host Seth MacFarlane wasn’t short of insulting quips and jabs at celebrities like Mel GibsonChris Brown and Rihanna, the latter of whom he likened to Django Unchained, saying: “This is the story of a man fighting to get back his woman, who’s been subjected to unthinkable violence. Or as Chris Brown and Rihanna call it, a date movie.”

Whether he was pushing buttons or just trying to push the envelope, he hit flat notes throughout the three-and-a-half hour award ceremony.

Here our picks for the best and worst moments:

Best #1: Channing Tatum and Charlize Theron ballroom dance during the opening monologue. The actors channeled Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers during MacFarlane’s rendition of “The Way You Look Tonight”… and boy did they look good together.
