Sacha Baron Cohen’s Dictator completely ruins Ryan Seacrest’s tux by dumping ashes on him. And it is awesome.

Octavia Spencer’s acceptance speech was so sweet. She probably needs to put that statue down to wipe her tears. #BRB

I don’t care if this Billy Crystal is completely digital, he still does entertaining and cringe-inducing as good as the original. #Oscars 26 Feb 12 ReplyRetweetFavorite

When they have the “In Memoriam” section later, it should include every single one of Billy Crystal’s jokes.
