I've just completed my 2010 showreel of work, and it is chock-full of examples of Blender stuff used commercially.
Blender is mainly used. The two exceptions: the flying phones - only two were modeled and rendered out of Blender; the other two were done in Maya by another animator (the spiral effect and metal doors are blender, tho). Everything was then composited in After Effects. The flying metaballs were done in Maya 8.5, because the metaball plugin doesn't work with later versions, and neither did the plugin to export the animation to a proprietary 3DTV format. If there were time and money enough - both those would have been completed in Blender tho!
