Al & Leo: It's Easy Being Green | Al Gore, Leonardo DiCaprio
First Al Gore joked that he wanted William Hung to play him in a movie about his life. Then – surprise! – he provided the night's funniest moment so far (sorry, Ellen).

After the former Presidential candidate revealed with Leonardo DiCaprio that this year's Oscars had gone green, DiCaprio asked if Gore didn't want to take the opportunity to "make a major, major announcement."

Gore assumed a serious face, pulled out a piece of paper and began to read: "My fellow Americans, I'm going to take this opportunity here and now to formally ..." Just then, he was cut off by the orchestra's "time's up" overture. Well, there's always the 2011 Oscars!
