Wow. Ellen DeGeneres was the first openly gay Oscars host, but she didn't mention it. Instead, it was best song winner Melissa Etheridge who thanked her wife in an acceptance speech.
It was a pretty gay Oscars, and I mean that in a good way, not in a "South Park" way. For those of us who know (or think we know) who in Hollywood is in the closet, we could point out to you which actors and actresses were probably applauding in their secret heart. But we can't tell you that, since we don't "out" people.
