Oscar Roundup

Here’s a round-up of tonight’s Oscar telecast featuring the Frat Pack actors and friends.

Ben Stiller presented Best Make-Up and joked that he should have worn his original Spock ears signed by Leonard Nimoy rather than the Avatar get-up presented here (Stiller is an avid Trek fan, remember). The bit was classic Stiller, somewhat funny though ultimately perhaps a bit too high concept for the proceedings (similar to his presentation of Best Visual Effects in a green suit a few years ago). Stiller did get to present the award to the deserving team for Star Trek however.

Steve Carell and Cameron Diaz presented the award for Best Animated Feature to Up. Diaz dropped a bit of Green Hornet news on the red carpet, indicating that she shared no scenes with Christoph Waltz. Tonight’s Oscar winner for Inglourious Basterds plays the villain in the Seth Rogen superhero movie.

Woody Harrelson lost the Best Supporting Actor to Waltz, but did pick up an Independent Spirit Award for The Messenger in the same category on Friday. Ben Stiller also appeared at that event, joking he hasn’t made an independent film since Reality Bites in 1993.

Jason Bateman introduced Best Picture nominee, Up in the Air, joking he enjoyed his time on the film because it was one of the few times anyone could boss around George Clooney.

Tina Fey and Robert Downey Jr. presented the award for Best Original Screenplay with an okay bit about writers and actors. Interesting that Fey and Carell were not paired together, as expected. There was plenty of Date Night talk on the red carpet, however.

Elizabeth Banks briefly appeared to recap her appearance at the Science and Technical Oscars a few weeks ago. And certainly looked great…

    Ben looks creepy! He looks like he should have been IN the Star Trek movies. I didn’t watch the show, but I wish I’d seen his part….especially since he did it alone minus Sacha.

    Love me some Steve Carell! (his wife is gorgeous!)

    Yeah for Woody! Glad to see he won something for his movie!

    Jason is so frickin’ adorable! (his wife is also gorgeous!)

    RDJ is so hot! LOVE those sunglasses…and that tie!

    Did Ben walk the red carpet? No Christine?!?!
