Mo'Nique rules, Martin and Baldwin disappoint and Fey, Baldwin and Stiller continue to tease
Worst: George Clooney is annoyed, stop cutting to him
If anyone saw George Clooney on E! Entertainment's pre-show, it was clear he didn't think he had a shot at winning Best Actor (he said he'd voted for Bridges himself) and had no real interest in being there. After Martin and Baldwin failed to make Clooney a foil in their opening monologue (or perhaps he just didn't think it was funny), the show director kept cutting to the "Up in the Air" star for his reaction. At one point, Clooney was so annoyed at the camera starring at him (it was no doubt in the aisle right next to him) he shooed it away with his hand which was caught live on air. Even after that moment, the director still kept cutting to what had become a stoic and unhappy looking former winner. Yikes.
[Left, a much happier Clooney on the red carpet before the show.]
