Jon Stewart gives the Oscars some true class

I know that bringing Jon Stewart back to host the Oscars struck some as a bit odd, as his job last year was received fairly coolly. Personally, I thought he did a fine job — nothing brilliant, but still fairly entertaining. And so far, his hosting job at this year’s Oscars hasn’t been all that different.

However, as far as I’m concerned, bringing Markéta Irglová back on stage so that she could give her thanks after being cut off by the Oscars orchestra was such an act of class that Stewart can keep the hosting gig for as long as he wants.
