I think the reason I enjoyed Hugh Jackman so much is that he seemed to be having such a good time doing it.

He really did! Plus I read that during the commercial breaks, he stayed on stage joking with the audience to keep the buzz going. But then he is a consummate professional and a shining example to us all!!!
Ahem. Sorry about that. I got a bit carried away with my Hugh Jackman fangirl-ness there. But I did think he did a great job. I mean, any song medley that ends with him belting out "I am Wolverine!" gets douze points* in my book.

Tom Hanks would be a good choice too because he isn't super surly or serious about his image and is able to play along with jokes, and he knows (I assume) most of the people who make up the first few rows of the audience so it might be a bit easier to razz on them a bit. RDJ would be great too for the same reasons.

*Eurovision reference because it's getting to that time of year again.

I actually think they could get away with no host. They could easily give the presenters a little more to do, and have a voice over introduce them when they come out.

The only issue is the opening number, but they could recruit people to participate in that, some kind of group performance. They wouldn't need to be involved in anything after that. Because really, the host coming back every few minutes just adds time to the show.

I just rewatched it. Yeah, bring Hugh back. He's got the stuff.

Definitely. Hugh's charming, multi-talented, and - I'm assuming - good at thinking on his feet because of all his experience with live theatre.

It doesn't hurt that he's handsome as hell. I'd gladly look at him for three-plus hours.

Seth McFarlane is next year's host.

I don't really like him, but I do think he's going to hurt a lot of sensitive celebrity feelings, which I DO like.

FOX shows usually run repeats on Oscar night, right? Because I can't imagine that Seth McFarlane's key demo would rather watch Seth McFarlane perform at the Oscars than watch Seth McFarlane's animated sitcoms.

I have mixed feelings on the man AND his work, but like Binky, I am looking forward to him hurting some Hollywood fee-fees.

I enjoyed Ted but felt guilty about it? I really am not a fan of his animated programs, though I do think they can be clever at times, BUT I do think he himself is weirdly amusing and a good song and dance man. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed his SNL hosting. So while I'm not a fan, and have issues with him and his humor, I do think he will be a capable host.

For me anything is better than James Franco or yet another Billy Crystal appearance and I was pumped for Eddie Murphy to host so yeah, let's do this. Plus he loves all that song and dance stuff,

I think that it's the kind of reasonably fresh thinking and youth-oriented nod that they've been needing for some time now. As to whether or not it will work, I have no idea, but he stands a good chance of being a decent host.

I wonder if he'll last longer than Ratner.

I dispise him too.

I'll say this for Macfarlane: He's not a hack, like Ratner. They may both be misogynistic schmucks who shouldn't be allowed the platforms they're given, but at least Macfarlane is genuinely talented.
