"Jon Stewart has been set to host the 80th Academy Awards® telecast, producer Gil Cates announced today. This will mark Stewart's second stint as Oscar host.
“'Jon was a terrific host for the 78th Awards,' said Cates. 'He is smart, quick, funny, loves movies and is a great guy. What else could one ask for?'”
Uhhhhhhh................maybe Billy Crystal??
Those Hollywood folks never ask for my opinion. :(
Anyway. According to Showbiz Tonight, the Awards ceremony WILL go on whether or not the writers' strike is settled.
OMG, do you know what this means? They'll be picketing the Red Carpet!
