Best Reminder to Keep the Speeches Brief
Will Ferrell and Jack Black
A little-known fact, according to Best Song presenters Will Ferrell and Jack Black: The orchestral music used to play long-winded winners off the stage actually has lyrics! Sample couplet: ''You're boring/Look at Catherine Zeta-Jones, she's snoring.'' None of the actual Oscar-nominated songs -- not even ''A Mighty Wind'''s ''A Kiss at the End of the Rainbow,'' performed by Eugene Levy and Catherine O'Hara in character as Mitch and Mickey -- was this entertaining.
