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

Stewart saved what could have been a tense night when he quipped in his opening monologue: "Does this town need a hug?" He also showed class when he invited Best Original Song co-composer Marketa Irglova (of Once) to return to the stage to give her acceptance speech, which was prematurely cut off by the orchestra.
