Paul Rudd, Eva Mendes on 'Independent Spirit Awards'Before Anne Hathaway and James Franco were "Inceptioned" by Alec Baldwin at the Academy Awards, another awards-show host found himself in a parody of a Best Feature nominee. About to take the stage to host the 2011 'Film Independent Spirit Awards' (Sat., 10PM ET on IFC), Joel McHale caught his arm between a giant rock and his makeup table. Banksy to the rescue! But the mystery artist only sprayed Bart Simpson graffiti on the rock, and then revealed himself to be... Alex Trebek?

Later in the proceedings, Eva Mendes said she and Paul Rudd intended to do a funny bit that involved groping, but the show was running behind schedule. Rudd fondled Mendes' breast anyway. And as Mendes announced the Best Screenplay winner, Rosario Dawson grabbed Rudd's crotch. What a, uh, touching moment. Also in the clip, watch Natalie Portman's acceptance speech for her Best Female Lead win.
