Steve Martin And Alec Baldwin To Host The Oscars



It hasn’t happened in twenty-three years, but the 2010 Oscars will have multiple hosts: Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin. “We think the team of Steve and Alec are the perfect pair of hosts for the Oscars,” said telecast producers Bill Mechanic and Adam Shankman. “Steve will bring the experience of having hosted the show in the past and Alec will be a completely fresh personality for this event.”

Steve Martin successfully hosted the Oscars in 2001 and 2003 and Alec is up for the challenge of a first time host. “I don’t play the banjo but I’m thrilled to be hosting the Oscars – it’s the opportunity of a lifetime,” Alec said, jokingly referring to. Steve also joked that he is excited to be hosting the show for the third time: “I am happy to co-host the Oscars with my enemy Alec Baldwin,” he said. [Source: AMPAS; Photo: Getty Images]
