Anne Hathaway just said, "It's 1929." No kidding. Then she presents an old-timey tribute clip, then Josh Brolin and Javier Bardem walk out. They take the stage to present the screenwriting awards in classy white tuxedoes, looking like they'll be serving martinis to Douglas Fairbanks and Myrna Loy at the Overlook Hotel. Aaron Sorkin wins the adapted Oscar. David Seidler wins the original one for "The King's Speech." (He's American?!)
