Jon Stewart has been named Oscar host for this year's ceremony.
Gotta say, I love him, but just as I had qualms about Chris Rock, (and I think they proved to be valid) I have some qualms about Stewart. I still think an Oscar host should have some ties to the movie industry (even though Carson was a great host, granted). I also think the Oscar host should be kind of bland, which Steve Martin has always been good at (and I mean that in the best possible way.)
A lot of right-wingers are getting their panties in a twist over the choice, but come on. Did they think Rush Limbaugh was gonna be asked to host or something?
