Sunday night's Oscar's had the Internet abuzz, and as usual these days the critics were out in full force. It's inevitable, as user wrote:

Ben Affleck's "Argo" took home the Best Picture award. Affleck was expected to be snubbed, but taking home the award gave him opportunity for inspiration and his acceptance speech was the most well-received of the night, as evidenced by the online reaction.

Fans were all aflutter over an onstage performance of a "Les Miserables" song — though there were mixed reactions.

Some were upset about the lack of speech time given to Ang Lee, who won Best Director for "Life of Pi."

As always, many just didn't want anything to do with the spectacle.

And one just hoped a TV-movie crossover would bring the whole thing to an early end.
