Post Steve Martin and ALec Baldwin to host the Oscars
Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin have been picked to host the Oscars. Do you think they're good picks?

Hosting the Oscars is for closers.

EDIT - They can't be worse than Hugh Jackman.

Who could be worse than Billy Crystal?

It was amusing when he hosted that year when Jack Palance was nominated for City Slickers. Jack made a comment about crapping guys like Billy after doing 1-armed pushups on the stage, so Billy spent the rest of the night taking spiteful cracks at him in retaliation.

I would rather see Baldwin host alone, he's much more awesome than Martin

Yeah Billy Crystal is the anti-funny, I can't believe people love him so much hosting the Oscar's especially the amount of times he has done it.

I thoroughly enjoyed Steve Martin hosting the couple of times he has done it so its a welcome return and as for Baldwin he is great on 30 Rock and has shown great comic timing in the past and is well spoken for this type of gig, personally he seems a little douche-y as a person but that doesn't bother me too much.

I say let Howard Stern host the Oscars.

Get someone who A. isn't hopelessly beyond his (her?) prime, and B. will not be restricted by the ceremony's weaksauce idea of comedy.

Martin and Baldwin are funny enough to host the Oscars in my opinion. Together? I don't know. It's smart from a marketing standpoint. I'm sure the show will continue, as Ken calls it, its typical brand of weaksauce comedy. It'll never get better than that, and I don't think Martin and Baldwin are going to make it worse. It'll probably feel a little more scripted than usual, though. (I'm still waiting for someone to improv for the entire show.)

Personally, I think Patton Oswalt would be an awesome choice, but who would consider it?
