Halle Berry will be all-animated everything for the Grammy-themed episode of The Simpsons. The Oscar award winner will be adorned in the Elie Saab crimson dress she wore during her 2002 Academy Award aceceptance speech.

According to Contact Music, this is the plot for the upcoming show:

In the story, entitled ‘Angry Dad: The Movie’, Bart Simpson’s cartoon about an aggressive father is turned into a film and wins huge critical acclaim.

The movie wins a Golden Globe, presented by Russell Brand (voiced by himself), but Bart’s dad Homer races up to the podium ahead of his son and gives his own acceptance speech.

The movie’s winning streak continues and Homer takes credit at each ceremony so when it’s nominated for an Oscar, Bart keeps it quiet from his family.

But Homer and wife Marge arrive at the ceremony just as Halle is presenting the statuette to Bart and after his fellow nominee Nick Park helps him realise that filmmaking is team effort, Bart gives his father some credit.

You can bank on Halle Berry’s character to be as stunning as she is in person. However, it’ll be quite a surprise to see how she’ll shine next to Bart and the Simpson family.

The show airs February 20.
