I hate hot girl-fat guy pairings, but Jennifer Aniston and Jack Black really have something. They're presenting a montage looking back on the year in animation. This is another way of lessening the blow of not being nominated or winning, or, in this case, not being "WALL-E," which wins the Oscar. Andrew Stanton, wearing a velour wall-hanging, seems pleased and reveals that he was once cast in a production of "Hello Dolly." I'm not kidding about the Broadway-ness of things.

Holy cow! "La Maison en Petits Cubes" wins best animated short! That was a surprise even if I predicted it (It's a wonderful movie). The director Kunio Katô, who's Japanese, says, "Domo Arigato, Mr. Roboto," which is what I would have said had I won.
