Ben Stiller mocks Joaquin Phoenix at Oscars

While Slumdog Millionaire and Kate Winslet rightly hit the headlines at the Oscars on Sunday night, the ceremony's funniest moment was provided by actor Ben Stiller.

The star of Zoolander and Meet the Parents presented the award for Best Cinematography with Natalie Portman dressed as retired actor and wannabe rapper Joaquin Phoenix.

Sporting a fake fuzzy beard and a pair of giant shades, Stiller lampooned Phoenix's embarrassing interview on the David Letterman show a couple of weeks back in which the star of Walk the Line showed that his humourlessness is equal only to his pretentiousness.
