    Are "except me/him/her/etc." and "except I/he/she/etc."

    I think the following sentences are grammatically okay.

    1. "Everybody went there except him."
    2. "Everybody went there except for him."
    3. "Except for him, everybody went there.

    Please tell me if the following sentences are okay.

    4. "Everybody went there except he."
    5. "Everybody, except he, went there."
    6. "Everybody went there except for he."
    7. "Everybody, except for he, went there.
    8. "Except for he, everybody went there."

    Definitely use "him" not "he".
