Jon Stewart to host Oscars

Too cool:

Jon Stewart, the Emmy-winning host and co-writer of Comedy Central's mock newscast "The Daily Show," today will be named host of the 78th Annual Academy Awards, three sources familiar with the selection process said Wednesday, ending months of speculation about the show's next emcee.

Academy officials and longtime Oscar producer Gil Cates have settled on Stewart, 43, who hosted the Grammy Awards in 2001 and 2002, the sources said.

One wonders what our favorite anti-BS (fake) newsguy will do with all the self-serving sincerity that is tinseltown, but it takes no crystal ball to note that BushCorp™ and friends seem hell bent on providing plenty of material.
