Former Oscar host (eight times) Billy Crystal gets a standing ovation.
“Where was I? Something’s never change. The producers have told me to tell you we’re running a little long. So here are the nominees for Best Picture.” He had the duties of introducing a tribute to Bob Hope, who hosted the first televised Oscars back in 1953.
Robert Downey Jnr. and Jude Law then came on stage to present the Best Visual Effects to Paul Franklin, Chris Corbould, Andrew Lockley and Peter Bebb for “Inception”.
Best Editing goes to The Social Network. “First thing’s first, *hugs*. We want to thank everyone who Aaron thanked. To David. It’s so inspirational to work with you”
