From the Anne Hathaway-James Franco disaster of 2011 to David Letterman's "Oprah, Uma" joke in 1995, here's a look back at the most memorable hosts in Academy Awards history
Crystal is easily the most beloved host of the last two decades. He has nine telecasts under his belt, including the 2012 Oscars and the 1998 Oscars, which reached more viewers than any other Academy Awards show in history. His trademark is a song-and-dance about the Best Picture nominees, but he's also famous for his unforgettable entrances. In 1992, he was wheeled onstage in a hand truck, with a Hannibal Lecter muzzle over his face -- a nod to that year's big winner, Silence of the Lambs.
