GIMME STEWART

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences confirmed on Thursday that Jon Stewart will host this year's Oscars, to air March 5 on ABC. In a statement, the anchor of The Daily Show and two-time Grammys host said, "As a performer, I'm truly honored to be hosting the show. Although, as an avid watcher of the Oscars, I can't help but be a little disappointed with the choice. It appears to be another sad attempt to smoke out Billy Crystal."
