Once in a lifetime?

We’ve just been promised a “once-in-a-lifetime live performance” after the commercial break. Um, isn’t every live performance on the Oscars once in a lifetime? It’s not like they bring songs back. If they were, Taraji P. Henson could reprise “It’s Hard Out Here for Pimp,” but I think she’s happy just to be nominated.
“Slumdog” is now two for two; “Benjamin Button” two for four. No huge upsets yet, though many were musing aloud that Viola Davis would win supporting actress for “Doubt.” Since the opening number, we haven’t seen much of Jackman. Maybe that number was all he gets.
