Steve Martin & Alec Baldwin: Oscars Co-hosts!

Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin will serve as cohosts of the 2010 Academy Awards.

Show producers Bill Mechanic and Adam Shankman said in a statement, “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.”

The ceremony, which was hosted by Hugh Jackman last year, will air live on Sunday, March 7, 2010 on ABC.

ARE YOU EXCITED to watch Steve and Alec co-host the 2010 Oscars???

  • Sherry

    Eh. Not really. I was really hoping they would get Neil Patrick Harris instead.

  • Jess

    great. Wish they would throw Meryl Streep in there as well!

  • Kim

    Great idea.
    It needs something.
    So boring.

  • **JAMIE**

    as long as its funny, because the Oscars are sooooooo boring

  • good

    i love both alec baldwin and steve martin. they are going to be great together

  • celia

    I love both of them…but haven’t they already tried the co-host thing and it failed?! I guess we’ll just have to wait and see. I wish they would just bring Billy Crystal back already.

  • Orchid

    What? No Hugh Jackman?

  • Wendy

    BOOOOOOOOOO! Definitely WILL be SKIPPED next year!

  • t

    nice i love alec

  • K

    No,I am not excited.Bring back Hugh Jackman or Billy Crystal!!

  • FairGame

    I don’t watch the Oscars, but I don’t like one thing about Baldwin. If he does host, I hope he bombs.

  • SaraS

    I literally just started clapping out loud! YES!

  • SF

    Come on! What a dismal choice! Will Farrell and Jack Black, the only pair to host the Oscar! Or Will Farrell alone!

  • British

    Gutted Hugh Jackman declined the offer to host them again. He was brilliant last year…hopefully he’ll do it again sometime soon.

  • Oh no

    How did I link to this. Nauseating

  • Tom

    Dual host never work out well.

  • Ali

    I want Alec Baldwin to work out and lose some weight. I like him a lot but I find myself worrying that he is going to get sick. Come on, Alec, what are you waiting for?

  • Ashlee Glam

    Hugh Jackman was better. How about Kevin Spacey or Jon Travolta?

  • MR

    Robert Downey Jr.

    Alec Baldwin alone would have been nice. Everybody knows him but never done a hosting job and they have to bring Steve??

  • Ruth

    Yes, they are both very talented and Steve Martin was brilliant when he hosted some time ago. Personally I didn’t like Hugh Jackman last year.

  • Lilly

    Love both of them, so looking forward to that.

  • chandra

    LAME. Will be as boring as usual. Last year was the only exciting year the Oscar’s have ever had when it comes to a host.

  • chef de Vestes de Cuisine

    Yeah, a perfect pair- but a pair of what?

  • Gaia

    They need a younger host – for the younger audience.

  • lakers fan in boston

    yawn, sounds like the oscars is gonna be really boring compared 2 last year
    it was my 1st time watching it last year but it was pretty decent
    i h8 steve martin, his jokes arent even funny, old man has lost his touch
    alec is alright, but i just dont think he’s that funny

  • Stone

    Where’s Dick Clark when you need him!

  • Chef de Vestes de Cuisine

    And that is how they became The Brady Bunch!

  • Jokergurl

    I though Jackman was great, they tried to get Robert Downey Jr. to do it but he said no, so did Ben Stiller. Bring back Robin Williams! he doesn’t need a teleprompter!

  • Tina Jerich
