Oscar Hosts' Best and Worst Moments Ever: 85 Years of Laughs and Gaffes

Jon Stewart

After a less-than-stellar first performance in 2006, the Daily Show comedian was invited back for the 2008 Oscars, which occurred shortly after the Hollywood Writers' Strike ended. 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.
