Ok, it's best actor, and they've brought the live tributes back. Thank God. These are really, really the best idea this show has had in years. These are the nominees' friends and costars. The speeches are extemporaneous and so sincere. Michelle Pfeiffer gushes for Jeff Bridges. Vera Farmiga burritos George Cloooney. Julianne Moore get emotional for Colin Firth. Tim Robbins salutes Morgan Freeman, with a funny joke about Freeman on the set of "The Shawshank Redemption." I hope it's true. And Colin Farrell dares to set the Internet on fire with gay rumors about him and Jeremy Renner. He says, "Good luck, brother" to Renner like they're all going into surgery or something. Kate Winslet arrives to hand the Oscar to Bridges. I love that he's not out of gas with these speeches. How adorable are his little yelps of joy? He's like a little dog. Jeremy Renner jumped up and down. Bridges is loving this. The Dude is finally an Oscar winner.
