Jon Stewart to Host the Oscars!

by | January 5, 2006 | Comments

Every news outlet, movie site, and cine-blog is reporting the news, so I’ll just cite good ol’ ComingSoon.net as our source, but there’s the good news: Everyone’s favorite comedic news host, Jon Stewart, has been tapped to host the March 5th Academy Awards broadcast, which automatically bumps the ‘must-see’ quotient up by about twenty-hundred percent.

"Los Angeles Times’ The Envelope is reporting that Jon Stewart, the Emmy-winning writer-host of Comedy Central’s The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, will host the 78th Academy Awards. The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed the news and the Academy is expected to make it official on Thursday morning.

Stewart previously hosted the Grammy Awards in 2001 and 2002.

Nominations for the 78th Academy Awards will be announced on Tuesday, January 31, 2006, at 5:30 a.m. PST, in the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater.

Academy Awards for outstanding film achievements for 2005 will be presented on March 5, 2006, at the Kodak Theatre at Hollywood & Highland, and televised live by the ABC Television Network beginning at 5 p.m. PST."

In addition to (brilliantly) hosting "The Daily Show," Mr. Stewart can be seen in films such as "Death to Smoochy," "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back," and "Big Daddy."
