    Hugh is the man. Funny and entertaining the whole way through. Stand up guy and the best way to start up the Oscars. Everyone looked great here. Hard to believe this is over a decade ago.

    "Who is here after The Greatest Showman?"

    The real question is: Who was here BEFORE The Greatest Showman?

    It took the Academy 10 years to realize no opening act would ever top this. That's the REAL reason there was no host at the 2019 Oscars.
