SHOW BITS: It's a long show. Need sustenance

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Academy Awards stretches more than three and a half hours — long enough to work up a thirst and an appetite.

To keep that joke energy up, Neil Patrick Harris munched on a Clif bar backstage while watching the In Memoriam segment on a monitor beside Meryl Streep and the show's producers.

Benedict Cumberbatch was sipping Champagne in the wings before going on stage to present an award.

"I've got to hand this to someone," he said. "Or else keep drinking."
