The Cycle | February 25, 2013
>>> quest to make tommy lee jones laugh begins now.
>> thank you, movie god.
>> it came true.
>> the actor who really got inside lincoln's head was john wilkes booth .
>> i was committed to play margaret thatcher .
>> you guys are just standing up because you feel bad i fell and that's embarrassing but thank you.
>> six months from having to call him benjamin afleck. i thought we'd cut this joke but really you want to do it? first time i saw him with that dark facial hair , i thought, my god, the kardashians have finally made the jump to film.
>> and the oscar goes to -- " argo ."
>> it doesn't matter how you get knocked down in life. because that's going to happen. but you have to get back up. this is for you.
>> 3:35 --
>> is that all?
>> i know. it was a shortest 3:35 ever. may be surprised to learn that i actually watched it.
>> some of it.
>> some of it. and it was okay. 85th annual academy awards , singing, dancing, jokes and awards and a surprise presenter i would have loved if i saw her. live from the white house , the first lady handed best picture to " argo ." the service members provided security for the envelope.
>> hey oh!
>> no surprise of daniel day -lewis. jennifer lawrence won best actress and hearts across america and annehath aaway and jonathan waltz. here at "the cycle" offices we had a three-way win with the booking producer tammy, graphic pros deucer traci winning along with toure.
>> you know it. you love it.
>> after a map rit rations. whatevs. let's back spin. you may be surprised to learn i did watch one of these movies. "beast of the southern wild" which was great.
>> working on that. i have to say she is incredible. and i would have loved to have seen her win but i think she will have a few more chances and i did watch it. i intended to watch the whole thing but actually after they announced the best documentary winner, "searching for sugarman" i decided that sounded interesting and popped over to watch that more instead. which was more interesting.
>> i'm sure it was.
>> it's to shine a light on films. right? before the oscars come, sells tickets. afterwards, creates stars to see in the future. it's gigantic ad for itself. who are the biggest winners? whose stock rose the most last snigt i think ben affleck , jen lawrence and waltz. these people are now sort of minted in to the super a-list. walk in to any studio with a script and scribbled on a paper and any studio wants to make a movie with you.
>> wasn't ben affleck doing that for ten years and got --
>> you're absolutely right and now walk in with a serious picture.
>> too many people said yes to ben affleck .
>> that was the problem.
>> now he's recovered. that's over.
>> walk in with a serious picture and take you seriously. you want to take us back to iran or what have you. go for it. it's interesting to see how they use the newfound power.
>> i dig the beard.
>> always beats no beards. i agree. i wanted to talk about seth mcfarland . we were sort of predicting whether he was going to go over. i said, look, i like " family guy " and funny. i don't know mass appeal and which i think of when i think of oscars . bringing wild age groups together from all over the country. they like different kinds of things. to me, like watching an episode of " family guy ." there were moments i thought, you know, this " star trek " one of right now thinking, gosh, my 90-year-old grandmother is watching and as confused by this as she is by " family guy ." and you watch a " family guy " and even funny and entertained, you can't remember what happened. you can't describe what happened in that episode because it's flashbacks to " star trek " and other things that didn't happen and talking dogs. it was weird. and a little metta. i don't know that it really reached everyone.
>> and the ratings are up 20% from last year.
>> i think that's because it was a really good movie year and people --
>> but which is why --
>> the host and the movies work together.
>> i don't think he will be brought back.
>> the big winner, one of the them, is billy krystal and should be named --
>> oscar host for life. again --
>> tina and amy should be named host of everything in life.
>> are you 60 years old? for real.
>> we tried the young kids two years ago. james franco and anne hathaway . billy krystal stole the show. 6.3 billion people watched it. incredible success.
>> do you predict he's brought back? seth mcfar lond?
>> i don't know. chris rock wasn't brought back either. it's more than are you good or not.
>> the mistake is it was an insider pick. if you're a fan of "the family guy " you know every sitcom and movie and get the references. this is supposed to be a broad appeal show and billy krystal lifetime contract.
>> found him mostly funny.
>> i like "the family guy ."
>> you didn't see half the show.
>> i like that we're calling "the family guy ."
>> she wasn't hooked.
>> he wasn't good enough to hold my attention.
>> that's right.
>> i moved on. facebook fans are weighing in on what surprised them more last night. " argo " or the first lady's live appearance? they were more surprised by the first lady. me, too. bobby says no doubt about it. michelle, class act. like us on facebook and let us know what stunned you the most at the oscars .
>>> straight ahead, a political odd couple of all time. dick and ike. but first, the after show. here's a little jennifer lawrence showing how absurd the press can be.
>> the fall on the way --
>> was that on purpose? absolutely.
>> what happened?
>> what do you mean what happened? look at my dress. i feel like i'm picking people to make fun of me. next.
>> you don't worry about -- peaking too soon?
>> well, now i am.
>> what was the process today to get to the big moment?
>> tried on the dress and it fit. thank god. and then i took a shower and -- i don't know what i was -- that's what i did. and then i got my hair and makeup done and then i
