"Fifteen career Oscar nominations. That's a record. I hate to say it but when someone puts up numbers like that, it's just hard not to think steroids." _ Host Hugh Jackman to Meryl Streep during the opening of the show.
"Now listen, I want you to relax tonight. I want you to say whatever is on your mind because you know we have a seven-second delay, but if you win, we switch to a 20-second delay." _ Host Hugh Jackman to Mickey Rourke during the opening of the show.
