Elizabeth Banks to Host Nerd Oscars

Somebody had to do it! Gold Derby's Tom O'Neil reports that Elizabeth Banks will emcee February 20's scientific and technical Oscars, at which plaques, certificates, and trophies will be distributed to poindexter engineers too homely to be seen on March 7's televised Academy Awards. Following in the footsteps of previous hosts Jessicas Biel and Alba, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Rachel McAdams, Scarlett Johansson, and Jennifer Garner, Banks will mostly be on hand to prevent anyone from cracking a camera lens while taking the winners' group photo.
