As if a three-plus hour awards show dedicated to showering the rich and powerful of Hollywood weren't already enough of an eye-roll to the average viewer, the aspect that viewers are supposed to engage with -- the host's wit and performance -- petered out after the opening number.

Oddly enough, ridiculous reactions from the celebs themselves filled in for an otherwise boring show. Clint Eastwood was hardly awake and Meryl Streep was bubbly, as usual. Here are some of the best moments captured for your enjoyment in GIFs.
