Zach Galifianakis has reprised his beloved web series Between Two Ferns — in which the comedian interviews celebrities in an improvised and deliberately awkward manner, between the titular plants — for a special two-part episode that focuses on the 2013 Academy Awards. The first part begins includes a testy exchange with Silver Linings Playbook star Jennifer Lawrence before she is “played off” in typical awards speech fashion, followed by Naomi Watts, Christoph Waltz, Amy Adams, and a drunken Anne Hathaway, while part two continues in a similar fashion with Zero Dark Thirty star Jessica Chastain, followed by Sally Field, “Daniel Day-Lewis”, and a bitter fight finale with The Hangover co-star Bradley Cooper. It’s great to finally have this series back after a two-year absence; let’s hope Galifianakis treats us to more delicious awkwardness in the near future.
