Oh, pulchritude: Here you are. Zoe Saldana and Carey Mulligan are presenting the three short film categories. They're presiding over another clip show. It's wonderful that they're giving props to the men and women who've made short movies, but the suggestion, of course, is that these people will go on to bigger and longer movies. It's a weird message. Anyway, Saldana and Mulligan's dresses looks good together. The charred bottom of Saldana's dress matches the black in Mulligan's. The award goes to "Logorama," whose director apologizes for his French accent, which says everything about the Academy's aversion to foreign-language movies. The next winner is "Music by Prudence," whose director runs ecstatically toward the stage. The woman to his left looks like a crasher, but she's the co-director. Not that it matters, the orchestra cuts her off. The live-action short winner is "The New Tenants." They looks shell-shocked. Sadly, I smell the band. Phew, they made it.
