The 82nd Annual Academy Awards began rolling out the evening's first Oscars to expected recipients. Favorite Christoph Waltz won the best supporting actor for his role as a Nazi in Inglorious Basterds, Up earned the Oscar for best animated feature film, and Ryan Bingham and T Bone Burnett won the award for best song from a feature film for "The Weary Kind" from Crazy Horse. Mark Boal won best original screenplay for The Hurt Locker. The evening started with a song and dance from How I Met Your Mother Star star Neil Patrick Harris. After the former Emmy and Tony host kicked off the show from the Kodak Theater in Los Angeles, he introduced the ceremony's co-hosts Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin. The two comedians gave a rundown of the evening's nominees, poking fun at their It's Complicated co-star, Meryl Streep, who holds the record for most nominations as an actress, charmer George Clooney, and Avatar director James Cameron.
