Oscar - 10:15 pm

There is a film segment to introduce the Best Documentary Award. They wouldn't dare let documentary producers on stage to speak live, they're way too boring. But after that Hugh Jackman musical number, how bad could it be?
Bill Maher comes out to give the Award, and the winner is "Man on Wire". Ooh, we've already polished off a large bag of Ruffles Cheddar and Sour Cream Chips and we're not even half-way through the show. And yes, that was a product placement, Ruffles Company, and you have our phone number. One of the winners balances the Oscar trophy upside down on his chin and the audience comes alive for a brief second. Oddly enough, it's the most electrifying moment of the night, so far.
Bill gives the Oscar for Best Documentary Short Subject to "Smile Pinki".
