Favorite gag: Craig's List Dancers and Ben Stiller (sorry Joaquin). Hmm, the low-budget dance gig was funny, but next year, can we make the Oscars look less like the Tonys? Or at least make it less than 3 1/2 hours long? I will say I dig the new look for the Kodak theatre!
I would like to add two names that I believe were left out of the tribute montage this year:
Don Lafontaine (the movie trailer voice) and Majel Barrett Roddenberry (TV actress and wife of Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry).

"WHAT’S ON YOUR PLATE? is a witty and provocative documentary produced and directed by award-winning Catherine Gund about kids and food politics.
Filmed over the course of one year, the film follows two eleven-year-old African-American city kids as they explore their place in the food chain. Sadie and Safiyah take a close look at food systems in New York City and its surrounding areas. With the camera as their companion, the girl guides talk to each other, food activists, farmers, new friends, storekeepers, their families, and the viewer, in their quest to understand what’s on all of our plates."
