Alec Baldwin’s thoughts on hosting the Oscars

Including the one movie he thought should have been nominated


 

According to co-host Alec Baldwin, the Oscars are more popular than the Grammys or the Tonys because “movies, at their best, make audiences feel things about themselves and life that other media don’t bring into focus as completely or effectively. Only books, I would argue, do a better job.” He gave this shout-out to the written word in an article he penned for the Huffington Post website. Baldwin singled out Carey Mulligan, Lee Daniels, Sandra Bullock, Christoph Waltz, Quentin Tarantino and Kathryn Bigelow as the most memorable people of the night for him. He also admits that it was hard not to openly root for those he thought should win, and laments the fact that the Academy overlooked indie flick 500 Days of Summer.
