Hugh Jackman was good last year, but, judging by this afternoon’s announcement, this year will be better. Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin will co-host the 82nd Academy Awards in February. Martin, who hosted the Oscars by himself twice said in a press release, “I am happy to co-host the Oscars with my enemy, Alec Baldwin.” Baldwin countered, “I don’t play the banjo, but I am thrilled to be co-hosting the Oscars.”
I am quite excited about this announcement, and am looking forward to the Oscars more than I was before. It should be a fun night.
