Between Two Ferns has fun with (and at the expense of) this year's Oscar nominees

Zach Galifianakis grills Jennifer Lawrence, Christoph Waltz, others with his trademark awkwardness

If you happen to be unfamiliar with "Between Two Ferns," the plant-adorned Funny or Die talk show hosted by an exceedingly tactless Zach Galifianakis, then you have about a dozen episodes to catch up with in which a parade of celebrities try their best to be a good sport in the face of uncomfortable questioning and questionable spelling. (Galifianakis: "You were in 'The Day The Earth Stood Still.'" Jon Hamm: "Yes." Galifianakis: "Why?") I'd recommend the Natalie Portman and Charlize Theron segments to get you started.

Now, Galifianakis is getting many of this year's Oscar nominees in on the act with a two-part episode just released this week. Although the content may not be exactly SFW, it's fun to see Jennifer Lawrence, Amy Adams, "The Hangover" co-star Bradley Cooper and others alternate between being mean-spirited, aloof or -- in Anne Hathaway's case -- plastered. Enjoy Part 1 and Part 2!
