"This seemed like a better idea in rehearsal." -- Ben Stiller

In Avatar makeup and yellow contact lenses, Stiller impersonated one of James Cameron's Pandoran characters to present the Best Makeup award. He began by speaking in (possibly) the Na'vi language (mixed with some Hebrew), and we have to applaud the Tropic Thunder star for going all in. Avatar wasn't even nominated for the makeup category; Star Trek artists ultimately won -- and, as promised, Stiller (and his ridiculous tail) stood "as far away from them as possible so as not to demean their moment of triumph."
