The Hebrew Na'vi

The Hebrew Na'vi was front and centre at the Oscar ceremony. Channeling his inner Pandora inhabitant, Ben Stiller hissed and tongue clicked his way into a blessing for the upcoming Passover holiday.

"Pesach," Stiller hissed. "Borei perrrrri hagafen." 

Pesach is Hebrew for Passover and borei pri hagafen blesses the fruit of the vine in the blessing over wine. 

Stiller's Na'vi blue-face, cat eyes, tail and braids may have been the comedic high point of the broadcast for viewers, but it was definitely the Jews who got the last laugh.
