    James Corden had to work damn hard to get where he is today. This was an exceptional opening! Perhaps he could bring that same fun back to the Academy Awards. :)

    9:38 I stopped. I felt emotional and shed a tear. Your achievements are remarkable. You have worked hard and stayed humble. You are a gem of a human and I am so very happy for you. Great work man.
