Yes, for some reason, Donald Duck was a co-host that year. Unfortunately YouTube doesn't seem to have any footage of him there.

In the 1980s, Paul Hogan was a superstar. Who didn't love Crocodile Dundee in the '80s? :D

He made the fact that he was always the host but never a nominee a running gag. "Welcome to the Academy Awards, or, as it's known at my house, Passover."

Jimmy Kimmel? Seems an odd choice. He's fine, but I don't think his brand of humor will play well at the Oscars. Maybe the producers wanted something a little more conventional after Chris Rock last year.

Typing in Bob Hope on this quiz is like typing in Wilt Chamberlain on a basketball quiz: a gazillion slots fill in, but you only get one point.
