About (Late) Last Night: Conan and Andy act out the best picture nominees

February 25, 2011 |  6:14 am


The Oscars are to take place Sunday night and in preparation for the big night, Andy Richter and Conan O'Brien have been acting out scenes from the films nominated for best picture.

Earlier this week, the duo -- with assistance from graphic designer Pierre Bernard -- performed a racy scene from "Black Swan." Naturally, the role of Nina, the lithesome ballerina played by Natalie Portman in the original, went to Richter; O'Brien played Thomas Leroy, her handsome and sensual director.

Wednesday night, it was "The Social Network," and O'Brien gave a bravura performance as both the Winklevoss brothers (members of the television academy, I hope you were watching.)

Finally, last night, it was time for "127 Hours," a riveting drama about Aron Ralston, a man who got his arm stuck underneath a boulder while hiking in a remote Utah park. As the boulder in question, Richter may have looked like a piece of "psychedelic French bread," but he stole the show. Watch for yourself above.

Which was your favorite of Andy's and Conan's Oscar performances? Do you wish they had acted out a scene from "The King's Speech" or "The Fighter" instead?
