Oscar liveblog: Jeff Bridges' victory lap

March 7, 2010 |  8:36 pm


8:28 pm: Tim Robbins gets off one of the best subtle digs of the night when he recalls how Morgan Freeman called him Ted on the set of "Shawshank Redemption." The rest of the best actor presentations, while long, are a nice ode from the nominees' past and present co-stars (especially nice since it's none of them besides Bridges who will get a moment the rest of the night).

Bridges' speech is nothing remarkable (though as he did Friday night at the Spirits, he sets a record for name-checking -- someone isn't really going for the whole thank-you cam idea) but not absurd or entertaining either. We pine for the days of Mickey Rourke and Sean Penn.
