The 83rd Annual Academy Awards were held last night. One of the highlights came early in the show when Kirk Douglas, 94, made a rare appearance, presenting Best Supporting Actress. He had the audience cracking up, telling host James Franco he looked better out of the cave, a reference to Franco’s film “127 Hours.” He then praised Franco’s Oscar co-host Anne Hathaway. “She’s gorgeous!” Douglas gushed, “Where were you when I was making pictures?” He also made a few jokes at Hugh Jackman for always laughing and poked fun at Colin Firth for never laughing because “he’s British.” After opening the envelope, Douglas kept delaying announcing the winner, enjoying his moment in the spotlight and keeping the audience laughing.
