Host James Franco posted images and videos of what was going on backstage during the telecast on his WhoSay page. One of the videos was of him and Anne Hathaway appearing on-stage for the first time during the show. In the telecast, you can also clearly see him holding a phone and taping a video of the audience during that moment.

Quotes
Cate Blanchett: [Immediately after clips from The Wolfman are shown] That's gross.

Kirk Douglas: You know, now is the moment. The moment that we are all waiting for. Hugh Jackman is laughing. I don't know why. Everybody in, in, Australia thinks they're funny. Colin Firth is not laughing. He's British. Now we come to the most important part.
