The Simpsons are going to the Oscars on Fox February 20 (one week before ABC airs the real deal), and 2001 winner Halle Berry will be on stage to present an animated film award.
"Bart makes a short film version of his Angry Dad Web series and is up for an Oscar and other awards, but Homer tries to take all the credit," executive producer Al Jean tells TV Guide Magazine. "Halle starts talking about herself as she's presenting. She ad-libbed something she actually dreams about at night that we left in."
As for re-creating Berry's Elie Saab gown, "We always ask the subject to give us a photo they'd like us to work off, and then we give the character an overbite," says Jean. "It's hard to make Halle Berry look bad."
