Standby for the start of TWoP's Oscars liveblog in 3... 2... 1...
8:30: And we're off! Here comes Morgan Freeman. Is he replacing Billy Crystal at the last minute? Been sent by Eddie Murphy to take Crystal out?
8:31: Nope, there he is. In a filmed bit that crosses Metropolis with The Artist insisting that he shouldn't host again. We'd agree with that.
8:32: And now he's kissing George Clooney, talking to a pre-weight loss Jonah Hill and doing a bit with Justin Bieber, who has clearly never heard of either Hemingway or Fitzgerald.
8:33: Ahh, yes the shit pie scene. This is why The Help deserves Best Picture.
8:34: So we've moved on from movies that were nominated for Best Picture to just any random movie that came out last year. Bonus points if star of said movie (like Tom Cruise) is willing to show up.
8:35: Those five minutes felt more like five hours. Let's avoid filmed bits for the rest of the night, please.
8:36: Yikes, a joke about how old his relatives are? He's really aiming for the young demographic here.
8:37: Uh oh, here comes the song! "You didn't think I wasn't going to do this, did you?" Well, we kinda hoped not.
