The Two Men Who Have Hosted ‘SNL’ the Most Will Co-Host the Oscars

Nov 4, 2009  •  Post A Comment

We don’t think that this was the criteria used by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, but as it happens, the two men who have hosted "Saturday Night Live" the most in that show’s history will co-host the 2010 edition of the Oscars: Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin. 

(According to Wikipedia, Martin has hosted "SNL" 15 times, and Baldwin 14 times. If this isn’t completely up to date, please let us know.)

  1. Chuck, seriously? You can’t call PR over at SNL and confirm that? Wikipedia is your fact-check?
    You’re not some talking head on a local morning show coming up with unconfirmed facts during adlibbed crosstalk. As a print journalist we kind of expect more from you.
    The title of your article is splashed across the front page of TV Week as if you gave a crap before you wrote it. C’mon, you’re better than that.

  2. The brilliance and success exhibited by Bob Hope and Johnny Carson, were their abilities to be spontaneously funny to what was happening, to keep the show rolling and to never make it about them.
    These two can do it, I hope they do.

  3. Excellent job.

  4. I just realized that Blimpie was noton the worst l ist. It really could be the absolute worst of 2009. These a m issed option. And occasionally non-designers say they might do what we do – in th is situation, even so, they’d be appropriate.
