They joked that Best Director nominee James Cameron (Avatar) was paid $3 million for the three seconds he was seen on the air sitting in the audience, and that anyone who works with Best Actress nominee Meryl Streep wonders, "Can that woman act?" Martin even glanced at the star of The Blind Side and asked, "Who doesn't love Sandra Bullock?" to which Baldwin replied, "We'll find out tonight!"
