Aw, HBC makes a "hate to watch myself" face out in the audience. Melissa Leo, who does look good in white and gold, waves at the camera. "And now, the moment we are all waiting for... Hugh Jackman is laughing. I don't know why everyone in Australia thinks I am funny. Colin Firth isn't laughing. He's British." Cut to Firth, who starts smiling in spite of himself. He keeps starting off with "You know..." and some new bit starts. An envelope within the envelope, (you know...) some business with a stick, (you know...) Colin Firth's laughing now! (You know...) "I'll never forget this moment! I lost all three times!" Eventual winner: Melissa Leo! Oh God, we are going to have the biggest wave of fur-coated campaigns next year. She bows to Douglas and kisses his hand. "Is this mine?" I'll give her this: she's a total ham about the whole thing, but she's really sweet about it. She asks him to pinch her (he does); Douglas says she's much better looking than in The Fighter; Leo asks him what he's doing later on. This is pretty much the best awards presentation in the history of the world. I have no idea what Leo just said because it started with "fucking" and got entirely muted out. She ends with "It's about SELLING MOTION PICTURES and RESPECTING THE WORK!" And then she walks off stage on Douglas's cane with Douglas leaning on her. That happened.
Hathaway, hysterically: "IT'S THE YOUNG AND HIP OSCARS!"
Ladies and gentlemen! Please welcome! Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis! Timberlake: "I... I'm Banksy." Kunis: "No... no you're not." Timberlake: "Ten years ago, the Academy introduced the Best Animated Feature award..." O...kay. But the background isn't animated, Justin! "I'm sure they make an app for that," he says, pulling out his phone. So of course, we get the Shrek "Far Far Away" backdrop, and Kunis tells him he missed a spot, and Timberlake looks very cranky, and I'm not sure what's going on.

Kunis: "And the Oscar goes to..." Timberlake: "You know..." Winner: "The Lost Thing." ("WOOOO!") "Our film is about a creature nobody pays attention to, so this is quite ironic." Are the winners from New Zealand? The very short winner speaks first, then the very tall winner leans down and thanks his wife as the orchestra softly plays him off.
