The movie business holds the Academy Awards in such high regard it can make or break a distribution deal. Luckily, actors don’t (always) take themselves so seriously. Aside from the over-the-top gushing that came when past winners introduced the nominees for the acting awards, there were plenty of LOL moments from last night’s Oscars (not including the moment when the camera caught Angelina Jolie laughing at Jennifer Aniston['s joke], above). From Styx lyrics in speeches to Steve Martin’s ego mania, here are our five favorite funnies…

Jon Hamm is guest starring on “30 Rock” starting Feb. 5, and a clip from the episode has been released! Liz Lemon (Tina Fey) discovers she has a handsome neighbor when Dr. Drew Baird’s mail gets delivered to her by mistake. From the 39 second that have been released, we know that Dr. Baird has an ice cream maker and loves to bake. Swoon.
The line Liz utters, “I want to go to there,” is one Fey stole from her daughter, Alice. At the SAG Awards, Fey thanked Alice in her acceptance speech for coining this phrase. About 25 years from now, Alice is going to be writing, starring in, and producing a show of her own, guaranteed. Either that, or she’ll be a highly acclaimed author. The girl is writing TV dialogue at age 3! Keep reading »

Tina Fey was on Conan O’Brien last night and had a funny story about meeting Sarah Palin during their mutual “Saturday Night Live” taking.
“Governor Palin was like, ‘Oh did Alice go home? Oh, cause Bristol woulda babysat.’ She offered Bristol Palin to babysit Alice… And it was Bristol’s birthday, too. I was like yeah, that’s exactly what 17-year-old Bristol Palin wants to do at SNL is babysit the toddler of the lady that goofs on her mom… but they’re a nice family.”

On last night’s “Weekend Update Thursday” — “Saturday Night Live”‘s special election coverage — Will Ferrell showed up to do a skit as George W. Bush, with Tina Fey as Sarah Palin. It was gosh darn hysterical and definitely a teaser for the material Ferrell is going to do in his upcoming comedy show, “You’re Welcome America — A Final Night With George W. Bush”, coming to Broadway in February 2009. One quibble about the skit — Tina’s new bangs are all wrong. [Variety] Keep reading »

Last night Governor Sarah Palin, the Republican nominee for Vice-President, made not one, but two cameos on “Saturday Night Live”. I have to say, she was pretty funny! Although, if she and her handlers think all the talk of her hotness is sexist, is she contributing to the sexism by doing a skit where Alec Baldwin tells her she’s “way hotter in person”? Whatever, I laughed. Above, her first cameo (featuring special guests Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin, AND Mark “Say Hi To Your Motha For Me” Wahlberg, and after the jump, the second, in which she thankfully does NOT rap.
