Mike Myers adds yet another English character to his resume. In the short "Oscar Etiquette", he's a butler named Cecil, who explains to Kevin Kline how to hold an Oscar. It's definitely a silly short, but pretty entertaining, especially Cecil's pronunciation of TMZ.
I've read that Mike Myers is making another Austin Powers movie. Personally, I think that three was enough. What I think is especially interesting here is Kline's making his Oscar win public. He tends to stay out of the limelight. To my knowledge, his presentation of Best Supporting Actor (or was it actress?) in early 2009 was his only appearance on the Academy Awards since winning his Oscar for "A Fish Called Wanda".
Anyway, it's an OK short. Nothing special.
