Though the actual 2012 Oscars ceremony has been a bit shaky thus far, host Billy Crystal still had an inspired moment during his always entertaining opening monologue.

At one point in the segment, the nine-time host mocked a scene from The Descendants, in which he was awoken from a coma by – what else? – a kiss from George Clooney. The kiss, of course, inspired Billy to get up and host the show. We can’t say we’re all that surprised.

George is nominated for Best Actor for his performance in The Descendants. Check out the hilarious clip now, then be sure to see his red carpet arrival with girlfriend Stacy Keibler below!
