10:19 -- Ben Stiller wins the Generation award, and the montage includes enough Zoolander and Ben Stiller Show clips to make me remember how much I used to like him. Zac Efron, Kiefer Sutherland and Triumph the Insult Comic Dog (there he is!) come out to pay tribute to him. Triumph manages to call Stiller a "Jew" and a "primate" in the span of a few seconds, which makes his going on about how ape-like Stiller is -- and how he gets it from his parents(!) -- kinda awkward. (To me, anyway.) Zac Efron, however, is delightfully deadpan, and Kiefer goes all-out, actually weeping over how good an actor Stiller is and what an inspiration he is. Hey, it's classier than having Kiefer mock-headbutt somebody.
10:29 -- Andy and Lonely Island pal Akiva Schaeffer play Doubt: The Video Game on the Sega Genesis. The game is short, and ends in a prayer for forgiveness. The sketch is also short, and I have to wonder if it was worth the airtime spent to pay someone to create that fake game footage.
10:34 -- The post-fight recruitment clip from Star Trek is digitally altered so that Pike is now a recruiting officer for "Starf Leet Clown College." A rubber chicken, a clown nose and those glasses with the spring-loaded eyeballs are digitally inserted into the scene. It's pretty seamless, but ultimately kind of pointless.
10:35 -- Abigail Breslin and Sofia Vassilieva say how much they love adult actress Cameron Diaz's "adult movies." Is this supposed to be a reference to her actual adult movies? (Google it.) They present Best Female Performance nominees Anne Hathaway, Angelina Jolie, Kate Winslet, Taraji P. Henson and Kristen Stewart. Hey, guess who wins? Man, she is really awkward. Something happens when I look away for a second, and she pretty much runs offstage after that.
10:38 -- Channing Tatum and Sienna Miller introduce the Kings of Leon. I go get another cupcake from the fridge.
10:45 -- The Kings of Leon play golf and swear every time they hit the ball. This is what would happen if I played golf.
10:47 -- Danny McBride and Will Ferrell come out holding fake cats to look evil. Will thinks they were anesthetized, but Danny had them euthanized. They're dead! Ha ha ha! Yaaayy animal murder! They drop-kick the cats and announce the nominees for Best Comedic Performance: Amy Poehler, Steve Carrell, Anna Faris, Jim Carrey and James Franco. Somehow, Jim Carrey wins. Do the kids even know who Jim Carrey is any more? Carrey is equally stunned, and wearing a suede trenchcoat that makes him look like a flasher. But there's a pre-recorded inner monologue bit that feels done to death, and helps drive a nail into the spontaneity of the entire event, along with the fact that half of these segments were taped out-of-sequence and it shows.
