Stewart hosts Oscars

09.12.2007

Jon Stewart Despite garnering generally lukewarm reviews for his stint as host of the 2006 Academy Awards, the AMPAS has decided to go ahead and invite back Jon Stewart to host the 2008 telecast as his patented self-deprecating political satire is sure to blend well with the political hubaloo of the year. That, or they picked his name out of a hat. In typical Stewart fashion, he had this to say of his re-appointment as shepherd of Hollywood's biggest night: "I'm thrilled to be asked to host the Academy Awards for the second time because, as they say, the third time's a charm." The show's scheduled to air Feb. 24 and will of course take place at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood.

One thing that needs to become a tradition

...of Jon Stewart's hosting duties: Those "spoof" political ads of Oscar categories battling each other. That was the funniest

"Don't vote for Judi Dench. She abuses people. Instead, vote for somebody beautiful and whom you can trust. ◊ote for Kiera Knightley for Best Actress.

Paid for by affiliates not affiliated with Kiera Knightley."

Classic! LOL!

well

Well it's not like they'll find anyone better to host the thing these days. Not a huge fan of Stewart, but atleast he'll be funnier than Ellen last year.
