Jon Stewart to Host Oscars

January 4, 2006 by  

Oh sweet heaven, this is fantastic news ! Although it has yet to be formally announced, it looks like the one and only Jon Stewart is going to be the host of this year’s Academy Awards. Oscar..Oscar..Oscar!!

I’m not sure they could have picked someone better for the role. Not only is Stewart one of the funniest people in the world, but he is one of the smartest comedians in many years.

I hope that the Academy learns from the Emmy’s mistake and makes the most of Stewart’s talents. We all know how the Emmy’s wasted Ellen DeGeneres by having her do a lame intro and bit parts. Ellen is too good for that. And Jon Stewart is WAY too much of a talent to be wasted on stupid and pointlesstime-filler gags.

Just the other day, when it was announced that Chris Rock wouldn’t be hosting this year’s ceremony, I turned to my friend and said that if the Academy knew what they were doing they would get Jon Stewart to host. Damn, I have such power. Ok, just wanted to let you all know. And know…it’s 11pm, and I’m off to watch The Daily Show. Hmmmm….what a coinkydink.
