Alec Baldwin Ready to Host the Oscars

via The Inquisitr by Bang on 11/17/09


Alec Baldwin isn’t nervous about hosting the Academy Awards.

The ‘30 Rock’ star is co-hosting next year’s ceremony with Steve Martin and believes there are higher expectations on the comic actor because he has fronted the Oscars ceremony before.

He quipped, “It is all on Steve. Steve Martin has done this before, while for me it is the first time. All the pressure is on Steve Martin.”

Despite his confidence, the actor is still amazed he was given the job and keeps waiting for someone to cancel his booking.

He joked, “I am doing it until they change their mind. I do have some preparations, but it is a secret.”

Steve, who fronted the 73rd and 75th Academy Awards, and Alec are the first people to co-host the ceremony since the first Oscars show in 1929.

Producers Adam Shankman and Adam Shankman said, “We think the team of Steve and Alec are the perfect pair of hosts for the Oscars.

“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 82nd Academy Awards take place on March 7 at the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles.
