Oscars 2010 Host: The Academy Awards 2010 Hosts
Oscars 2010 Hosts: Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin
The Oscars for 2010 have not one but two hosts. In a rare move for the Academy it went with the two host format of Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin who will be sharing hosting duties for the 82nd Annual Academy Awards on Sunday.
Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin Two Times the Fun at Oscars 2010?
Alec Baldwin of course is the star of 30 Rock the popular TV show while Steve Martin has already hosted an Academy Awards Show.
We think the team of Steve and Alec are the perfect pair of hosts for the Oscars,” said Oscar telecast producers Bill Mechanic and Adam Shankman. “Steve will bring the experience of having hosted the show in the past and Alec will be a completely fresh personality for this event.”
The Oscars start at 5 pm PST and can be rather long, often up to 4 hours so the role of the host or in the 2010 case, hosts is critical. It will be interesting to see the dynamic between Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin - both veteran actors and both have a strong sense of comedy. The question is since the Oscars are a live event how will the hosts respond to the unexpected?
I am happy to co-host the Oscars with my enemy Alec Baldwin,” said Martin.
I don’t play the banjo but I’m thrilled to be hosting the Oscars – it’s the opportunity of a lifetime,” said Baldwin.
