Hosted: twice (2005, 2007)
The Daily Show host Jon Stewart proved he has the capacity for greatness in 2007, when the young, tremulous star of Once, Marketa Irglova, didn’t get a chance to say her thank yous after winning for Best Song... so Stewart brought her back out after the commercial break to do just that. It was a classy, independent and very endearing move, a clear sign that Stewart could, someday, own the job of Oscar host.
