The Oscars are tomorrow and with Kristen Wiig nominated (Best Original Screenplay for "Bridesmaids") we're more invested than ever so we took a look back at some of the sketches from this season that involve Wiig's fellow nominees and some of our favorite Academy Award related sketches from previous seasons. Enjoy!! And join us in wishing Kristen the best of luck!
The French teens from "Les Jeunes de Paris" were joined by Jean Dujardin (Best Actor in a Leading Role nominee for "The Artist") for some good, old-fashioned fun and dancing. Lots of dancing. "
The stage version of Best Picture nominee, "War Horse" got the SNL treatment in this sketch from the Jimmy Fallon-hosted Christmas show. And while we haven't yet seen the film, we're hoping Sudeikis' lute player character is predominantly featured.
Jason Segel and Muppets Monologue
When Jason Segel reported to 8H for hosting duties, he brought along some Muppet friends and while the song they sang during his monologue didn't earn an Oscar nom like "Man or Muppet" from "The Muppets" did, it was still pretty adorable and very funny.
The sequel to Best Picture nom, "Moneyball" has a lot less math and statistics, and a lot more steroids.
Melissa McCarthy Monologue
If "Bridesmaids" has taught us anything, it's that when Best Supporting Actress nominee, Melissa McCarthy and Best Original Screenplay nominee, Kristen Wiig team up, hilarity ensues. That and be wary of the meat at sketchy Brazilian restaurants.
Billy Crystal Monologue
We wonder what Billy Crystal will do in his Oscar monologue, but what we most wonder is does Billy Crystal still have those leather pants and do you think he'll bust them out for the big night tomorrow??
Wayne's World: Oscar Best and Worst
Everyone knows the best Oscar commentary is reported out of a basement in Aurora, Illinois. Schwing.
Take a look behind the scenes at what it's like to be an Oscar.
The Academy Awards are great, but sometimes we prefer the "Insane Academy Awards" if only because we love the drama of a small monkey on a pedestal, always moments away from violently attacking Dieter and his lover.
The Joe Pesci Show: Oscar Special
If you're looking for astute and comprehensive Oscar commentary, Pesci and DeNiro are probably not your guys. But if you are looking for Marisa Tomei insults and Richard Dreyfuss stompings look no further. So have some respect, take a look and don't shampoo their wives.
