Though there have been Oscars with multiple hosts in the past, this will be the first time two hosts have shared the same locale on Oscar Night since the very first ceremony in 1929.
Martin and Baldwin appeared together on an episode of NBC’s “30 Rock” and both are among the cast of the upcoming Nancy Meyers comedy “It’s Complicated”.
