2009 Oscar Co-Hosts: Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin!
The co-host announcement was made last night by Oscar telecast producers Bill Mechanic and Adam Shankman. They said,
“We think the team of Steve and Alec are the perfect pair of hosts for the Oscars. Steve will bring the experience of having hosted the show in the past (he hosted twice) and Alec will be a completely fresh personality for this event.”
After the announcment was made, Martin said “I am happy to co-host the Oscars with my enemy, Alec Baldwin.”
Baldwin responded with a jab at Martin’s affinity for a certain instrument, saying “I don’t play the banjo, but I’m thrilled to be hosting the Oscars – it’s the opportunity of a lifetime.”
The ceremony will air live on Sunday, March 7, 2010 on ABC.
