Unbelievably sexy Daily Show host Jon Stewart will be taking a short break from receiving award statues two at a time, and will try his hand at giving them out instead. He is the as-yet-unconfirmed choice to host the Academy Awards on March 5. (via The Fix)
Thank goodness Billy Crystal isn’t trotting out his tired routine for the ninth time. Word on the street is that Jon Stewart will be employing the help of Daily Show writers to make this year’s Oscars the most hilarious ever! If he wears soccer shorts, then there would be perhaps a 20% chance of me actually watching them.
