Jack Nicholson Makes a Weird Speech at 'The AFI Life Achievement Award'The stars came out to honor a great director at 'The AFI Life Achievement Award 2010: Mike Nichols' (Sat., 9PM ET on TV Land). Famed director Mike Nichols has been making films for more than five decades now, and during that time, he's made a lot of friends in the industry. Among the celebs in attendance were Tom Hanks, Dustin Hoffman, Harrison Ford, Julia Roberts, Jack Nicholson and Meryl Streep.

It was a night of praise for the creator of such classic films as 'The Graduate,' 'Working Girl' and 'Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?' "You're more than a great director," Dustin Hoffman said to his friend. "You're a real artist down to your toes."

The one puzzling speech of the night came from Jack Nicholson -- who arrived late to the ceremony to begin with. "This is so wonderful what everyone is saying about you," Jack told the director. But the actor then continued with this head-scratching comment: "I have to say, remember, Mike: even oysters have enemies."

Huh? Say what now? "Even oysters have enemies?" If anyone figures out exactly what that means, please do let us know.
