Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin host the Oscars.
Up (2009) was the second animated film to be nominated for Best Picture. The first was Beauty and the Beast (1991).
Alec, what's that movie about?
Alec Baldwin: It's about Leo Tolstoy and his wife, Sofia.
Steve Martin: Oh, Alec, you should have said "spoiler alert!"
Samuel L. Jackson states that Up (2009) is the second film to be nominated for both Best Picture and Best Animated Film. This is incorrect since the only other animated film to be nominated for Best Picture was Beauty and the Beast (1991), but it was not nominated for Best Animated Film. The category didn't exist in 1991.
