Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin will co-host the 82nd Academy Awards telecast.
“We think the team of Steve and Alec are the perfect pair of hosts for the Oscars,” said ‘Oscar’ producers Shankman and Mechanic. “Steve will bring the experience of having hosted the show in the past and Alec will be a completely fresh personality for this event.”
“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.
The Academy Awards will be presented live on ABC Sunday, March 7, 2010 from the Kodak Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center.
