Best: Kristen Wiig and Steve Carell's Best Animated Movie Presentation
What do we have to do to get Wiig to host this damn show? With Bill Hader, with Steve Carell, by herself – we'll take whatever we can get. For Best Animated Motion Picture, the Despicable Me 2 costars reminisced about the first animated movies they saw, which quickly took a solemn turn and dredged up awful childhood memories. For Carell, it was recalling how his mom announced her decision to divorce his dad after a screening of Fantasia; for Wiig, it was seeing Bambi after putting down her three dogs (named Janet, Chrissy, and Jack). The delivery was everything. And the idea that kids movies can also connect with sad, more mature circumstances (however fictional) was a nice touch. These are the people you want on the frontlines of a Best Documentary Short award, you know? There isn't a subject Wiig and Carell couldn't spin into comedy gold.
