Sean Penn arrives, looking like he's ready to accept the award for "Mystic River" all over again. And here's Ron Howard, resembling no one so much as Benjamin Button about 35 minutes into the movie. Marisa Tomei's dress is lovely, as is she, but it does remind me of the napkin arrangement at my daughter's bar mitzvah. Re Ryan Seacrest and some of his questions: Do you have to fail an IQ test to get this gig?

Otherwise, I'm having fun.
