Academy Awards Hosts list

Best, worst and weirdest Oscar hosts of all time

Chris Rock has been tapped to host the 88th Academy Awards ceremony on February 28. Rock also hosted the show in 2005. Let's see how he stacks up against hosts of Oscars past ... including himself.

Weird: Donald Duck – We are not making this up. In 1958, an animated (and bare-bottomed) Donald Duck co-hosted the show with Bob Hope, Jack Lemmon, Rosalind Russell and James Stewart.

Best: Hugh Jackman – Hugh Jackman was high-energy, classy and charming when he hosted the Oscars in 2009. Who could have imagined it from Wolverine?

Best: Neil Patrick Harris – It wasn't a slam-dunk success, but Neil Patrick Harris had his moments while emceeing the 2015 Academy Awards ceremony. The versatile entertainer came out on stage in his underwear, revealed his fake Oscar "predictions" and mocked the nominees' lack of diversity with jokes about "the best and the whitest."

Best: Bob Hope – The fact that Bob Hope hosted the Academy Awards 14 times is enough to earn him a spot on this list. Whether Hope was hosting or co-hosting, he seemed to receive praise from critics. The Academy honored him with the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award in 1960.
