Ben Stiller does a nifty brokedown-Joaquin Phoenix impersonation that was a big hit when someone else did it last night at the Spirit Awards. Marisa Tomei really likes Stiller's. Natalie Portman plays the gamely exasperated straight woman. And as Stiller's bit turns peripatetic, the camerapeople improvise with him. Conveniently, the category is cinematography, which Anthony Dod Mantle wins for "Slumdog Milllionaire."
