It was a pretty action packed awards season this year. By the way, did anyone catch the Spike Awards in June? I never realized how awesome they were. Just had to point that out. Seems like they’re getting pretty big, not to mention some very large stars are in attendance. Guess I missed out the past couple of years.
In any event, perhaps the most important element to an awards show is the host. And that host better get the attention of the audience fast or risk making the entire night boring.
Here are seven hosts who definitely did their jobs….
Conan at the Emmy’s
It was odd to see him at the Emmy’s because Conan isn’t for everyone. He’s definitely a little out there but I happen to like him so it’s pretty awesome. Whee!
Timberlake at the 2008 ESPY’s
It’s impossible not to like this guy.
Ricky Gervais at the Golden Globes
Sure most people said this was controversial but man, it was hard to argue with the points he was making here.
Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin Oscars
I think this was almost more sheer delight for people seeing these two guys on stage together more than anything else. If that makes sense.
Seth Meyers at the ESPY’s
It’s funny because I don’t really see Meyers as being all that funny but whenever he’s news reporterish he does a good job.
Billy Crystal at the 64th Oscars
This was classic.
Jon Stewart at the 80th Oscars
Stewart never disappoints.
