The popular Aussie entertainer wasn't as outright funny as other hosts, but he charmed the audience nonetheless.

You can build a dream with nothing." He then performed a low-budget song about the Best Picture nominees, complete with cardboard sets, "Craigslist" dancers, and a cameo by Anne Hathaway.
