Both Sacha Baron Cohen and Ben Stiller were set to present an award with Cohen as a Na'vi from Avatar (2009), pregnant with "James Cameron's love child", and Stiller as his translator. The idea was canceled by the Academy to not offend Cameron. Stiller, however, appeared as a Na'vi in a watered-down version of the skit. See more »
Samuel L. Jackson states that Up is the second film to be nominated for both Best Picture and Best Animated Film. This is incorrect since the only other animated film to be nominated for Best Picture was Beauty and the Beast, but it was not nominated for Best Animated Film. The category didn't exist in 1991.

[Presenting Best Makeup in a complete head to toe costume as a Na'vi from "Avatar"]
It's a little weird that they had me dress up like this since Avatar isn't nominated for best makeup.

_The worst costume goes to : the dress worn by Sandy Powell the lady who won the Oscar for the best costume design !
_The best line goes to : "I love you baby more than the rainbows" said by (Ryan Bingham), the winner of the best song, to his wife.
_The most creative moment goes to : (Ben Stiller) wearing as Avatar's creatures just OH MY GOD !
_The meanest look upon someone's face : (Quentin Tarantino) when he heard that someone else him won the Oscar for the best screenplay. Hmmm, wait a minute. I don't think it was mean. He always looks this way !
_The worst jokes came from : (Steve Martin), talking about whores, Sandra Bullock, or Avatar. Silly jokes Steve, silly and offensive. And you know what the worst part is ? THEY ARE NOT FUNNY !
_The most mediocre factor goes to : The 2 hosts. They were between "Ok" and "Yawn". When you put (Martin) with (Baldwin) what you'd have is : half of good host !
_The most invisible moment goes to : honoring Hollywood's icons (the lifetime achievement Oscar and the Irving Thalberg award previously). Yes, they made them as one award, but with names like Lauren Bacall and Roger Corman how there wasn't even a short montage for their greatest works ?!
_The most distracting moment goes to : the dead artists montage. 3 screens to Not be able to watch anything or anyone !
_The most predictable moments goes to : I always thought that the academy used to send deliberate hints through selecting certain stars to present certain awards, whereas you can predict the winner by seeing the presenter. So it was easy for me to relate (Sigourney Weaver) and (James Cameron), who she worked with in (Aliens) and recently in (Avatar), when it came to present the set award to (Avatar). So (Barbra Streisand) and (Kathryn Bigelow) when it came to the first female to win the Oscar for the best director. Then the awfully thin, not too starry now, (Demi Moore) when it came to the dead artists montage !
_The best moment of the show goes to : (Kate Winslet) while declaring the award of the best actor since she said wisely "The Oscar Goes To" instead of "And The Winner is" which all the presenters said it this year in sort of ugly way that indicates how all the rest competitors are LOSERS !
Fair show by the way. Not the best, but fair.
