Hot on the heels of the news that the awesomely funny and brilliant Ricky Gervais will be hosting the Golden Globe Awards in January comes the news that not one, but TWO, of my favorite funny people will be hosting this year's Oscars: Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin! (pictured courtesy NBC)
The two are thrilled — in their own way — to be hosting the coveted ceremony. “I am happy to co-host the Oscars with my enemy Alec Baldwin,” Steve said in a statement.
“I don’t play the banjo but I’m thrilled to be hosting the Oscars – it’s the opportunity of a lifetime,” Alec replied.
The 82nd annual Academy Awards will take place on March 7 at the Kodak Theater in Los Angeles and will air on ABC.
