Best Presenter - Hands Down
It's an open secret Ben Stiller has been asked to host the Oscars a number of times and turned the Academy down at every turn. Therefore, it's only more frustrating for everyone who is fans of the movie stars MTV Movie Award stunts and select presenter gigs such as last year's Academy Awards and this year's 25th Independent Spirit Awards where he pretty much stole the show. Some highlights thanks to HitFix's Dan Feinberg:
"I think it says volumes about the organizers of this event that even though I've been in over 350 big-budget studio movies over the past five years, the Spirit Awards were bold enough to say, 'You, Ben Stiller, epitomize our core values," Stiller cracks. "And what are those core values? I couldn't tell you if you paid me. Which you obviously have, since I'm here."
"Today I represent a group rarely heard from in show business... Jews. Finally our chance."
"One thing is clear... Anyone channel-surfing at this hour is looking for porn."
Three "independent porn stars" join Stiller on stage. Their names? Maggie Jizz-n-Balls, Parker Pússy and Philip Semen Hoffman.The porn stars strip and hump as the Best Film nominees are read aloud.
