The first promotional photos for this year's Academy Awards have surfaced and are here for your viewing pleasure. (above)

Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin sure look like they'll be bringing a lot of shtick to the show, but is that really what it needs?

Thoughts?

  1. 1

    Should have invited Hugh Jackman back, he was excellent last year!



  2. 2

    Alec Baldwin is NO gentleman!!!! However, I really like Steve Martin, so it might stand a chance.



  3. 3

    It's just like Christmas all over again…ham everywhere, too much of it & after a little while you don't want to see it anymore



  4. 4

    They need to tighten it up, not draw it out with a lot of stupid in between dance numbers and comedy bits. Instead of showing clips from films now, they give us more crap?

    Thanks to the academy. No, really.



  5. 5

    If the Oscars ever had any credibility, that was sadly lost forever when they handed one of those shiny statuettes to Al Gore for his fake documentary film.



  6. 6

    I was very disappointed with Ricky Gervais at the Globes, so who can say how Baldwin & Martin will do. It's all about the writers and their delivery. I think a stand-up comic is usually the best choice as a host for these shows.



  7. 7

    I like both guys. But this is a horrible ideal. They do not need a host, just get to the awards and the few songs.



  8. 8

    And when they wheel out Liz Taylor, 'Godger Night At The Movies' will be complete. Is NBC running this show? Ten Best Pix Noms? There weren't ten good pictures released last year. Are they actually naminating "The Road", "The Blind Side" and maybe "The Box". Launter and Tatum are going to have do a dance number in thongs to save this turkey.

    STEVE MARTIN IS A LEGEND
    REMEMBER YOU SAID THAT YOU WOULD LIKE NEIL PATRICK HARRIS TO HOST?
    SORRY I LIKE NEIL TOO BUT JUST BECAUSE HES GAY AND FUNNY IT DOSNT MEAN HE SHOULD HOST EVERYTHING BUT IM SURE THE FUNNY PART DOSNT MEAN ANYTHING TO YOU,IM SURE YOU LIKE HIM JUST BECAUSE HES GAY

    ELLEN WAS ALSO A PRETTY GOOD OSCAR HOST



  11. 11

    mariah's retouchers worked on this?



  12. 12

    love them both, especially Steve Martin, and I think they'll be great!



  13. 13

    i like the idea of two people hosting the oscars :)



  14. 14

    I'm sure they'll do a great job, I really like Steve Martin, and Baldwin is pretty funny too, when he's not insulting his child that is…



  15. 15

    they showed these on TV last night!



  16. 16

    It will be interesting to see the dynamic between the two and how they play off one another. I will watch the beginning just to see how that pans out.



  17. 17

    I wanted Hugh Jackman back…



  18. 18

    I think they'll be funny - I'll watch!



  19. 19

    I love Steve Martin.:)



  20. 20

    I like Steve Martin. And it would be pretty cool having two funny guys hosting the oscars :)



  21. 21

    two old farts.. that's my thought.
    hope steve martin doesn't ruin the night by playing his banjo.



  22. 22

    Love Steve Martin. Alec? Not so much.



  23. 23

    I love Alec Baldwin….he's so funny. Steve Martin too….should be good.



  24. 24

    Those two are stiffer than the Oscar trophies.



  25. 25

    Good luck with that. I will still be watching.



  26. 26

    Oo look, it's the new Jerry & Dean, except these two losers have a lot less class. Steve Martin looks like a commenter on MSNBC with those old man glasses - oh wait, he's always been an OLD man - Baldwin, he's just a buffoon. Could care less about this big liberal fuck-fest -I hope it tanks who wants to watch a bunch of masturbating liberals at the prom.



  27. 27

    Come on, these two could be pretty funny, they're both SNL alumni when SNL was still funny. You could go with something edgier but Hollywood wouldn't like it. Ricky Gervais and Russell Brand are really funny but they'd offend everyone. Well, not me.



  28. 28

    I CAN'T WAIT!!!



  29. 29

    Lame-O and a Has Been = Boringgggggg Show : (

    Skip it



  30. 30

    As long as Tina Fey and the 30 Rock crew write Baldwin's stuff, he will be hilarious. Steve Martin could do this in his sleep. It'll be great.



  31. 31

    both of these guys are very funny together just watch them on the old snl bits about who hosted snl the most its to to funny….besides if the oscars are going to be that long and boring then they have to make it interesting



  32. 32

    Boring!



  33. 33

    I can't believe they chose Alec Baldwin to co-host the Oscars…. Mr. "I don't want to be in showbiz anymore"…. yeah right. He should let some air out of that big head of his.



  34. 34

    looks promising



  35. 35

    great!



  36. 36

    can't wait…Alec B and Steve Martin together are hilarious!!!!



  37. 37

    I can't stand puffy smartalec baldwin and Steve Martin shtick is old and tired. I will not watch past the red carpet.



  38. 38

    OMG, that narcissistic douchebag (Alec, of course) actually got an award?!?!?! I guess that proclamation that he's quitting acting is null and void now? LOL, you just watch!



  39. 39

    ZZZZZZZ…why stop at 60, could have gotten Betty White.



  40. 40

    I can see Alec Baldwin hosting, he's pretty hot right now. But Steve Martin?? I think my mom really liked him back in the days.



  41. 41

    I don't like Steve's glasses
