Zach Galifianakis Just Made the Oscars Really Uncomfortable

Oscar nominees are pretty careful not to offend on their award-season interview tour. But in bringing back his viral video series "Between Two Ferns" for Funny or Die today, well, Zach Galifianakis is having none of that. In a video labeled "Part 1" (so we're assuming there's a Part II on its way!), the Hangover actor trades barbs with stars, who are wearing the same outfits they had on at last week's Nominees Luncheon, which was weird... just not this weird. It all makes for very uncomfortable viewing, and while the nominees aren't quite as game as, say, Charlize Theron, it also makes for some of the most high-wattage fern action yet. Let's look at the "interviews," sketch-by-sketch:

Jennifer Lawrence

The Bit: After Galifianakis alleges that co-star Bradley Cooper said she was "ugly," Lawrence spews insults at the host. He starts: "You played in a movie called The Hunger Games." She responds: "Yeah, isn't that your life story."

Christoph Waltz

The Bit: Waltz, who won an Oscar for playing a Nazi in Inglourious Basterds, has a secret Mein Kampf tattoo. Also, Galifianakis asks: "Have you ever thought of changing your name to Christoph Break Dance?"
