Judd Apatow's Pineapple Express Oscars Comedy Short
by Alex Billington
February 22, 2009
Another one of my favorite parts of the Oscars ceremony last night was the Pineapple Express comedy segment featuring James Franco and Seth Rogen. In case you didn't know, it was written and directed by Judd Apatow and also featured the real Oscar winning cinematographer Janusz Kaminski. I've been anxious to see it again, because I laughed so much when I first watched it, and the two pulled off a perfectly hilarious segment again. Truly one of the highlights of the entire Oscar ceremony! Sorry for the low quality video below, but we'll try and update it once we get a better high resolution version, but until then, enjoy!
Watch the 2008 Comedies presentation from the Oscars:
We will update the video with a high res version once one is available.
I've never forgotten the Jack Black, Will Ferrell, and John C. Reilly team-up from the Oscars two years ago (watch that video), and I'm not sure this topped that, but it definitely came close! I've got to say, I love that they went back to their Pineapple Express characters for this, because there's nothing better than watching two stoners laugh at a bunch of big Hollywood movies. Especially when they make fun of The Reader and Doubt and laughed at the intense scenes in those movies, because that's not too uncommon! Could this have been the funniest Oscar segment ever? Any other favorite Oscar moments this year?
