Best special guest stars
The evening opened with the now-customary extended spoof film, inserting hosts James Franco and Anne Hathaway into the nominated Best Pictures, with two standout cameos. First, the hosts entered the dreams of last year's cohost Alec Baldwin (à la Inception). Then Morgan Freeman showed up at one point narrating Franco and Hathaway's adventure: ''Alec likes me to narrate his dreams. Says I have a soothing voice.'' Would that Freeman narrated all our slumbers.
