LET US BEGIN.

RIPPED FROM TODAY'S INTERNET

HEADLINES, IT'S RAPID REFRESH.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

TONIGHT'S RAPID REFRESH HAS A

SPONSOR AND IT'S A VERY GOOD

ONE, IT'S BROUGHT TO YOU BY

"SOUTH PARK: STICK OF TRUTH,"

WHICH I AM VERY EXCITED ABOUT.

IT'S AVAILABLE TOMORROW ON

XBOX 360 AND PLAYSTATION 3

AND PC AND I BETTER (BLEEP) GET

A COPY OF THAT GAME AFTER I

JUST SAID THAT BECAUSE I HAVE

BEEN WAITING FOR IT FOR A LONG

TIME.

ALL RIGHT, THE OSCARS LITERALLY

BROKE TWITTER LAST NIGHT WHEN

THE SELF-CONGRATULATING EVENT

BECAME A SELFIE-CONGRATULATING

EVENT AND THIS PICTURE GOT 2.7

MILLION RETWEETS.

THERE IT IS.

THAT'S A LOT OF FAMOUS PEOPLE.

IF THE TERRORISTS AIMED THERE,

WE WOULD BE DONE AS A COUNTRY,

WE WOULD JUST CRUMBLE.

OF COURSE, THE BIGGEST DEAL

ABOUT THE OSCARS ISN'T THE

AWARDS ANYMORE, IT'S THE MEMES

THAT ARE GENERATED DURING AND

AFTER THE SHOW.

LIKE THIS MEME OF EVERYONE IN

ELLEN'S SELFIE AS KEVIN SPACEY.

(LAUGHTER)

IT'S ALL JUST KEVIN SPACEY.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

I'M NOT SURE HOW RACIALLY

COMFORTABLE I AM WITH THIS ONE.

(LAUGHTER)

COMEDIANS, WHICH OF THE

FOLLOWING MEMES BASED ON AN

OSCAR MOMENT GOT THE MOST

RETWEETS?

A) BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH WHO

PHOTOBOMBED U2 AT THE OSCARS

CUMBERBOMBING GRAVITY.

THERE HE IS.

(LAUGHTER)

B) BETTE MIDLER STOLE APPLAUSE

FROM THE IN MEMORIAM MONTAGE AND

HERE SHE IS STEALING PHARRELL'S

HAT.

(LAUGHTER)

C) JARED LETO AS BUDDY JESUS

FROM DOGMA.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

WHICH OF THE FOLLOWING GOT THE

MOST RETWEETS?

KURT BRAUNOHLER.

>> I'M GOING TO SAY A JUST

BECAUSE I WANT TO SAY BENNY

DICK.

>> Chris: IT'S BENEDICT.

HE'S SHERLOCK HOLMES, GET IT

RIGHT.

NO, THE CORRECT ANSWER IS C,

BUDDY JESUS AND JARED LETO.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)
