Isn’t it usually a past winner?
(I know he had a film opening that day but wow what a commercial move on the academy’s part)
Who got him on there?
He’s got a great reading voice, I’ll give him that, maybe the best in the past five years. And wasn’t handsome enough to distract me from the actual nominees, so that was also a plus. That Chris Hemsworth year was the worst, since he’s awful at both respect.
They felt bad that the Emmys snubbed him for nine years of stellar work on The Office.
Oh yeah I forgot that Chris Hemsworth did it once too. I guess it must have something to do with who watches the morning news shows.
Not entirely sure. It’s possible he’s there to pitch Benghazi, which so far, doesnt seem to have helped.
The man is well connected, and he’s out there doing more than ‘acting’. He’s been around for a while and really, who wouldnt like the man whose partner is Emily Blunt? Wish she had received a nomination this year.
Because he’s hot…duh. It’s not always a past nominee, though. Emma Stone presented them the year Seth McFarlane hosted. Chris Pine (I think?) presented last year. One of the Hemsworths as someone else mentioned presented a few years ago. I feel like it’s usually an “up and coming star” slot.
Yeah they must have changed the policy over the years to a young star doing it. I guess I haven’t really been paying attention to those announcements in the internet age. I just read them online when I get up.
There was a period where they would have the supporting actor or actress winner from the previous year do it. I can remember years ago people like Denzel, Geena Davis, and even as recently Octavia Spencer doing it. I liked that better. Sort of like members were inviting new people to the club.
