Mike Myers Teaches Kevin Kline "Oscar Etiquette" in Funny or Die Video
Posted 02.21.12 by Chris
Those lucky enough to win an Oscar should at least know how to hold it, right?
Good thing for Academy Award winners there is British Oscar expert, Sir Cecil Worthington.
Mike Myers plays Worthington in new Oscar video, produced by Funny or Die. In the video, Kevin Kline, who won the 1989 Best Supporting Actor for A Fish Called Wanda, is forced to take a "refresher course" on Oscar Etiquette. And the proper way to hold an Oscar? "Keep the thumb below the bum."
Oscar winners also apparently need to know everything there is to know about the Oscar. How much does an Oscar weigh? 8.5 pounds.
Interesting to see Myers working with the Academy given that he's yet to win or even be nominated for an Oscar.

The Oscars are on ABC on Feb. 26
