Hosts Rob Huebel and Paul Scheer proved to be more adept at the pre-taped bit than the on-stage patter at the Critics' Choice Movie Awards. Their opening "documentary" look at actors who play inanimate objects, with auteurs such as Michael Bay asking, "Why would I want a gun to play a gun, when I could get an actor to play a gun?" Huebel and Scheer took a note from the Gervais book of hosting, calling the proceedings, "The ninth most exciting night in Hollywood."
