Robin Williams uses a testicle joke that makes us forget that terrible
sound glitch during the standing ovation for Lauren Bacall and John
Calley. More him, please. Less of the lamp shades behind. They look
like a Crate & Barrel showroom. He's presenting the supporting
actress Oscar, but that buzzing sound in the auditorium persists. I
love that Maggie Gyllenhaal looks so moved by her montage. It's
Mo'Nique, who gets a standing ovation, which is spectacular since it's
partially for her "strategy" of just doing her talk show instead of
having Academy voters over to her house for dinner, which she mentions.
Her other speeches have been more rousing, but this one was no less
sincere. "And baby" sounds so sexy when she says it to her husband.
"And baby" yourself, La Mo.
