Oscar has a definite sense of humor

Funniest moments in the first 90 minutes?

1) Ben Stiller’s bearded space-case imitation of Joaquin Phoenix, gazing off into space and wandering aimlessly around the stage during the presentation of the cinematography award?


2) Or James Franco and Seth Rogen’s return to their stoner characters from "Pineapple Express" as they watched a montage of comedy movies from 2008, getting uptight when a gay kiss from "Milk" is shown then Franco turning full-guy macho, body-slammingm face-stapling madman when footage from "Wrestler" shows up? Bonus moment: when two-time Oscar winning cinematographer Janusz Kozminski (filming their bit) come out from behind the camera, plunks himself down on the sofa between them with his Oscars, and the boys wonder if there’s a way to turn to statues into marijuana pipes.



Of course in the case of Stiller’s zoned-out turn, he completely overshadowed the guy who won the prize. Anyone remember who that was?
