Billy Crystal: "You know, this is the year we say goodbye to Harry Potter. They made more than 7.7 BILLION dollars, and only paid 14% in taxes last year." Please welcome non sequitur-winning Melissa Leo!

And the Oscar goes to Christopher Plummer! Please bring some class up into this joint. Viola Davis leads a standing ovation (seriously, she JUMPS to her feet). Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's lipstick are slightly less beneficent this time around. "You're only two years older than me, darling. Where have you been all my life?" he says to his Oscar. "I have a confession to make. When I first emerged from my mother's womb, I was already rehearsing my acceptance speech. Fortunately for you, I have forgotten it." He also thanks his fellow nominees, particularly "dear Max, I am so proud to be in your company." Wait, I just realized that he is wearing a black velvet suit. I need to hit post now.
