Lesley Messer Ladies and Gents!!
Curious as to why so many stars who aren't up for awards are walking the carpet? They're probably presenting. Here's the complete list of presenters:
Chloe Grace Moretz
T-Minus 10 minutes till the show!!!!
We're getting final instructions on how to behave backstage (no photos, sorry guys!) and everybody's excited for things to get going!
Here we go Neil Patrick Harris just took the stage!!!!
"Tonight we honor Hollywood's best and whitest ... I mean brightest" - Neil
Neil just pointed at Clint Eastwood and basically asked him to pull a Kanye West -- this is going to be good!
Neil is singing a montage of past films and Anna Kendrick just joined him -- best Duet Ever!
Now Jack Black is joining in on the fun!! Tenacious D!!!!
There really are no words -- this is easily one of the best musical numbers in Oscars history, so much diverse talent -- more Jack Black, more Kendrick, more more!!
"That whole thing, completely improvised" - Neil
American Sniper grossed almost $300 million ---- "American Sniper is Oprah, cause you're rich" - Neil
Press room erupted into applause for J.K. Simmons.
"Wow ... I am grateful everyday for the most remarkable person I know my wife" - JK
"I am grateful for you love, your kindness, your wisdom, your sacrifice, your patience" - JK talking about his wife and his children
"You are smart, loving people and that's because you are a reflection of your mother." - JK. "Call your mom, call you dad. If you are lucky enough to have a mother or father on this planet don't text, call them."
Amazing speech!! Just simply amazing.
J.K. Simmons is going to be heading backstage at some point soon -- anybody have any questions for him?!
The gift bags for attendees this year include $160,000 worth of gifts -- wow
