Zach Galifianakis’ Between Two Ferns: Oscar Questions As They (Maybe) Ought To Be

Zach Galifianakis' Between Two Ferns: Oscar Questions As They (Maybe) Ought To Be

In a promo for ‘Pitch Perfect’ that seems to have been on an endless loop on my On Demand Chanel lately, Rebel Wilson gushes “We had such fun” making the movie. Just once, I would love to hear an actor say: “It was hell, we hated each other, I never want to work with those losers again.” Just once.  In the meantime, we have Zach Galifianakis’ new Oscar installment of his faux-web show, ‘Between the Ferns’. Galifianakis, as the idiot host, talks to real-life nominees Jennifer Lawrence, Naomi Watts, Christoph Waltz, Anne Hathaway and Amy Adams about, as he puts it  “all of their Oscar buzzness around them.”  His question to Watts – “Do you have to shrink yourself to get into the camera?” — is only slightly more ridiculous than some actual questions I’ve heard.

Because this comes from Funny or Die, which has a taste for adolescent humor, I guess the poop and fart jokes shouldn’t be surprising. But at least we have a satirical version of the kind of celeb interview that might actually offer some candid answers. (You can watch Part 2 of the Oscar Edition, with Bradley Cooper, Jessica Chastain and Sally Field, here.)
