Albert Maysles has made an engrossing documentary tribute to the nominated documentary directors. Then presenter Bill Maher comes out and pays tribute to himself. James Marsh, who made "Man on Wire," about Philippe Petit's walk across the World Trade Center towers, wins. Petit joins the filmmakers onstage and balances his Oscar on his lips, which is almost as brilliant as James Franco and Seth Rogen's trying to turn Janusz Kaminski's two Oscars into bongs. ("Smile Pinki," about children with cleft palates in India, wins the documentary short category. I saw none of these short documentaries movies, I'm embarrassed to say. Congratulations, Megan Mylan.)
