Today's Evil Beet Gossip

And The Job Goes To …



The Oscars aren’t happening until March 7th of 2010, but as of today, the hosts have been confirmed.

Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin will co-host the 82nd Academy Awards.  Martin has done this gig twice before and Baldwin is a hosting virgin.  When asked about the pairing, Martin replied “I am happy to co-host the Oscars with my enemy Alec Baldwin,” and Baldwin stated “I don’t play the banjo, but I’m thrilled to be hosting the Oscars – it’s the opportunity of a lifetime.”

I’m not sure how this match will be, but if it helps me make it all the way through the four-hour (plus!) broadcast, I’m all for it.

  • Steve Martin rocked the serious banjo onstage in Seattle the other night. How come he doesn’t age? I swear to God, he has looked exactly like that for my entire life.

    • So True! I’m glad he’s back hosting. The Oscars just haven’t been the same without him. Oh hell, I’m thinking of Billy Crystal. What did they ever do to piss him off? He was so good at hosting.

  • They did an hilarious skit on SNL together a little while back and they really do complement each other, I reckon it’ll be great

  • You know what I think would be super cool–as well as humbling (something these “stars” need)….

    If the people who win one award, give their acceptance speech and then have to introduce the categories and nominees for the next award. It seems like a time saver… and for once, they have to give up a bit of their smug moment to put the spotlight on someone else.

  • What is the age group that actually watches this show? My guess is 60 and above, based on their hosts.
