The Red Carpet was crowded with nominees and non-nominees alike, all making their way into the auditorium in what was the Kodak Theater until Kodak entered insolvency.

Host Billy Crystal owes Kodak a debt of gratitude for giving him so much extra material to work his humor with.  By the appointed hour of 5:30 p.m. local time, everyone was in place and the show was launched.

Crystal’s opening was brilliantly and wittily written as it has been each of the 8 prior times he hosted Oscar’s biggest evening.  There was even a kiss from George Clooney as Crystal stood in for the character of Clooney’s comatose wife from The Descendants, one of the films nominated for Best Picture.

The cast of the latest big screen adventure for the man in blue tights has been just plain stellar so far, and could get even better.

Variety reported on Wednesday that Robin Hood himself, Russell Crowe, is chatting with Warner Bros. about taking on the role of Jor-El. The famed father of Superman himself, Clark Kent (a.k.a. Kal-El), is a role famously played by Marlon Brando in the Christopher Reeves films (one for which he scored a big paycheck for appearing onscreen for only a few minutes).
