Hello, WALL-E

The safest bet of the night: WALL-E won best animated feature, with Andrew Stanton collecting his second Oscar. (He previously won for “Finding Nemo.”) Warming the hearts of drama teachers everywhere, he thanks his for casting him as Barnaby in “Hello, Dolly!” many years ago. (Hence the charming “Hello, Dolly!” excerpts in “WALL-E,” obviously – there’s a mystery solved.)
Meryl Streep’s daughter, I notice, has perhaps the best seat in the house. I’m getting used to the crystal curtain, but don’t understand some of the other design decisions; for example, why did it look like it was snowing behind Penelope Cruz during her speech? And are they really going to bring out five people for each acting award?
