    The 83rd Annual Academy Awards were Sunday's highest trending topic on Twitter. Although the ceremony honored the year's best with the prestigious statuettes, the program itself was worthy of a Razzie. Twitter's a beautiful tool that allows celebs to exclaim without a publicist's guidance, and those who weren't jeweled in attendance provided comical commentary as the "underground" hosts of the evening.

    Similar to the Muppets' Statler and Waldorf who brutalized from the balcony, comedians criticized from their couches. We've collected our favorite tweets that were posted at the ceremony's worst moments.

    Comedian, Patton Oswalt, who is known for his blunt, opinionated stand-up routines, punctually flooded his Twitter followers with quirks of disapproval. As 94-year-old Kirk Douglas hobbled across the stage to present the award for Best Supporting Acress, we were all reminded why you never bring your girlfriend to grandpa's house.

    Patton kept it up throughout the treacherous, three hours. He let us know who deserved Best Documentary (couldn't agree more).

    Sure Natalie Portman deserved the Best Actress award for her role in "Black Swan", and her speech was heartfelt. But we all know that the actual awards are insignificant. True importance lies in "whom the stars are wearing" (a bit disturbing). Conan O'Brien made sure to let his fans know who he found to be "worst dressed".

    Gwyneth Paltrow's veil of "cool" has been wiped away. The marriage of Margot Tenenbaum to Chris Martin was a royal engagement. Her delve into country music has struck fear into the hearts of Coldplay fans. Onion News Network's anchorwoman, Brook Alvarez, is the Queen of Satire, and she too withheld applause for Paltrow's musical performance.

    Celine Dion is most famous for her iconic track on the "Titanic" soundtrack. Her voice sunk the "unsinkable" ship, leading hundreds to their icy graves, and the Oscars' producers found it appropriate for the diva to perform behind the "In Memoriam" montage(they forgot Uncle Leo). Thankfully she now has a 3-year residency in Vegas at Caesar's. Comedian, Rob Delaney, was none-too-thrilled to witness Dion back in the limelight.
