Were just about at 11:30 and there are still four major categories left to present.

Harrison Ford is out to present the Original Screenplay award and gives the most lifeless reading I've ever seen. Somebody should have told him "Faster. More Intense." Ah yes. Diablo Cody cements her industry darling status with the win here. She gives a sweet speech, thankfully devoid of any pop culture references.

Here's Helen Mirren to present Best Actor. Danny Day Lewis is wearing a pair of hoop earrings. Are they making another sequel to Pirates? Daniel Day Lewis wins, and the universe continues to make sense. P.T. Anderson looks a lot different from the Magnolia-Fiona Apple days, when he looked like a computer geek. Daniel looks like a pop star, it's so weird that he's the guy that played Bill the Butcher and Daniel Plainview.

Best Director montage, and what am I thinking? "LORD, Sofia Loren was hot." I love that Scorsese was presented the award by Coppola, Spielberg, and Lucas. And here's Marty to present Best Director. The Coens win! Good job, fellas. These guys are so awkward. I love it.

Denzel is here for Best Picture sporting a shaved head and a goatee, making him look like Avery Brooks. "No Country" wins! Can't argue. It was even money with "There Will Be Blood."

And we're out, at 11:49.
