Wow. Jessica Biel looks fantastic from the neck up, and then she's wearing some blousy drapy satin bedsheet horror, I don't even know. She's here to recap the Sci-Tech Awards Thingy, because she was the Hot Chick Consolation Prize Host they always throw to the tech guys who aren't "important" enough to be awarded on the show itself.
And... that was it. Commercials. YOU ASSHOLES! I HIT POST FOR THAT?
Movie commercial: Robert Downey Jr. and Jamie Foxx in The Soloist, a movie that looks like it was created in a lab to win Oscars.
We're back. It's the Apatow short film. It's... Seth Rogen and James Franco in Pineapple Express mode. They're going to watch all the movies that were nominated for an Oscar, except for The Love Guru, which they got instead of Slumdog Millionaire. They roll around laughing at Doubt and The Reader. Dollar bills are stapled to faces. Franco tries to make a move on Rogen during Milk. Janusz Kaminski and his two Oscars come and hang with them.
Please welcome! James Franco! Janusz Kaminski! And Seth Rogen!

"Spielzeugland" wins; Rogen laughs at Franco's enthusiastic pronunciation. I think an oncoming headache is sapping me of any sense of humor.
Next up: a once-in-a-lifetime performance! I imagine it will not involve Peter Gabriel!
