Here it is, your Oscars moment of Zen

Jon Stewart to host 2006 Academy Awards.

Can I get a HELL YEAH? (From everyone, not just Neil Diamond.)

Really, anyone but Whoopi fucking Goldberg is a victory. (There's a reason why she's permanently vilified in my site's headbar text above, mostly having to do with how very, very awful her Oscar hosting gigs have been.) But Stewart -- this has potential to be truly excellent.

Or not -- the Academy Awards is not an easy forum, even for the best of comedians. But I have high hopes.

Maybe next year -- Conan O'Brien? (Fingers crossed.)
