Alec Baldwin on co-hosting the Academy Awards: “It was very intimidating for me”

alec-baldwinThis Sunday is Oscar night, so who better to ask about the responsibility of hosting the Academy Awards than Alec Baldwin,  who shared the honor with Steve Martin last year?

“It was very intimidating for me,” said Baldwin. “The weight comes from the fact that you have two competing things: you want the show to be entertaining and fun and you’re honoring achievement in the motion picture business, which people take very seriously. To tether back and forth between those two can be difficult, at times.”

He adds, “the Oscars are different from other award shows in that some of these people are going to win this award and it’s going to shoot them into the stratosphere. It’s going to change their lives.”
