Jimmy Kimmel set the tone, and the evening was elegant. But the most memorable was Jamie Lee Curtis, a child of Hollywood, winning an Oscar. Seeing her reaction after her name was called, was a treat. She finally made it up to the stage. Her speech was short, sharing her award with everyone in her family, and the film's life.

It isn't a long shot, but it's a sure bet that Jamie Lee Curtis would speak the truth in a heartbeat.
