Himself - Co-Winner: Best Makeup: Thank you, Academy. And thank you to my colleague on "The Iron Lady," Mark Coulier, without whose brilliant prosthetics I wouldn't be standing here this evening. Thanks, Meryl, for keeping me employed for the last thirty-seven years. Your brilliance makes my work look good no matter what.

How to fix the Oscars?

Step one...nominate films that the general public care about...when art house critic's pets dominate..the award looses credibility. And no, I do NOT feel making "Bridesmaids" compete against something arty like "Tree of Life" is the answer.

How about looking back toward the Academy's early history. In 1929 someone had the BRILLIANT idea of giving one award for Artistic Merit...and one for solid popular film-craft..."Sunrise" won for "Artistic Quality Of Production" (and is usually noted as one of last great flowerings of the Silent screen)..."Wings"...a beautifully crafted and exciting audience pleaser won the equivalent of "Best Picture"...rather than having popular entertainment duke it out with artistic triumphs...THEY HONORED BOTH...it seems like a wonderful idea to me...but the "Artistic...." category was deemed unnecessary as of the next awards...

Bring it back...one award for "Film" one for "Movie"...and no it is NOT ghetto-ising popular entertainment...it is celebrating it...

Another basic problem stop with the annoying lead outs...(WHO thought of putting that very out of place musical ensemble up in that balcony...every time they started their cacophony I wanted to turn the channel...and the stupid stunt of having people wandering up and down the aisles handing out goodies...cheap and tacky...

Oh...NEVER do another mind numbing and totally extraneous production number that adds NOTHING to the evening but length (the aerial acrobatics might have wowed the theater audience...they were boring and poorly shot on TV...if you need to provide cheap entertainment for the Hollywood insiders save it for the commercials...

Oh and one last thing CUT BACK ON THE ENDLESS ADS!!!! I watch only one night of TV a year...and the torture of being bombarded with these annoying messages swears me off the medium every year...

Other than that...some writing worthy of the host...and a bit better taste in presenters would be nice...(please no more stoned acting very happy youngsters...Emma Stone seemed to be taking lessons from James Franco...)...

Anyway...I fully believe the awards can be saved...but only if movie lovers are given genuine reasons to continue caring!
