From Vinterberg's statement:
Clay figures, extreme beauty, violence, homosexual blow jobs, systematic humiliation of the human kind, Léa Seydoux’s legs, great Brando imitations are just some of the unique images that will follow us for a while.

Looks like you will be able to watch the ceremony (in French) here.

Edit: Red Carpet is going on now, you have to change your computer time to Paris time.

Berenice Bejo takes Best Actress. I'm assuming that means Blue is the Warmest Color is winning something else.

No, but it can be personal.

Anyways, it's nice they got around the rules by also giving the palme to the actresses. Didn't they do that last year with Amour? Or did Trintignant and Riva just get special mentions?
