That’s right, everybody’s favorite Jew boy will be hosting the 78th annual Academy Awards, making it a show I’d actually care to watch again. Problem is of course that in Israel it comes on at 3am. And I don’t own a TV. And two years ago when I had arranged to spend the night with a friend that had TV and cable, it just didn’t come on at all even though it was scheduled to. Life in Israel. Mah la’asot.
Stewart commented on being picked:
“As a performer, I’m truly honored to be hosting the show,” Stewart said, then joked: “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.”
For all of you movie lovers in Choz La’aretz, enjoy it. The show will air March 5 on ABC.
