Best performance by Steve Martin as Oscars host
Steve Martin has hosted the Oscars twice in the past — 2003 (honoring films released in 2002) and two years earlier. He did a superb job both times. His shining moment came in 2003 when he singled out Mickey Rooney — who was situated far back in the audience — and said during the opening monologue, "I'm sorry we couldn't get you a better seat, but Vin Diesel is here!"
