Alec Baldwin on Hosting the Oscars

SHE'S VERY FUNNY. >> Jimmy: YOU HOSTED THE OSCARS. WHAT YEAR WAS THAT? >> LIKE 2010 I DID IT WITH STEVE. >> Jimmy: AND AFTERWARDS, DID YOU FEEL LIKE IT WAS A POSITIVE EXPERIENCE? >> IT'S AN UNUSUAL EXPERIENCE. YOU'RE IN THE HOUSE AND YOU'RE ON TV. AND THE OSCARS ARE BEAMED OUT TO COUNTLESS OSCAR PARTIES IN PEOPLE'S HOME. THAT'S ONE THING. THE SCARS IN THE ROOM IS A LITTLE DIFFERENT. SOMEBODY IN YOUR STAFF POINTED OUT. BY THE TIME IT'S OVER, YOU'RE IN A ROOM WITH TEN WINNERS AND 250 LOSERS. A LOT OF LOSERS THERE. BUT THE THING I LOVED ABOUT IT, SINCERELY. WE WOULD TAKE A BREAK AND I WOULD BOLT DOWN THE STAIRS OF THE ROOM AND SAY HI. BILL MACY, THIS ONE, THAT ONE, MY FRIENDS. A PERSON WOULD CORNER ME, SOME GUY WHO WAS LIKE 80. HE WOULD SAY, I WANT TO THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR AGREEING WITH ALL YOUR VALUABLE TIME TO HOST THE OSCARS. MY NAME IS DON GRIFFIN AND I WAS THE STUNT COORDINATOR ON SHE WORE A YELLOW RIBBON. AND HE NAMES AN OLD MOVIE. OH, MY GOD. NEXT BREAK. A WOMAN WOULD SARGS I'M SO GRATEFUL FOR TAKING TIME OUT OF YOUR BUSY SCHEDULE TO HOST THE OSCARS. MY NAME IS MIRIAM HATHAWAY. AND I WAS A SCRIPT ASSUME VISOR ON VERTIGO. >> CAN I TELL YOU SOMETHING ABOUT MY EXPERIENCE? NO ONE THANKED ME FOR DOING IT AT ALL. NOT ONE OLD PERSON CAME UP. AND THANKED ME FOR THIS! ONE, TWO, THREE.
