Watch Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin’s Best Oscar Moments

Together as twin hosts of the Academy Awards, Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin did what they do every time they separately host Saturday Night Live: Through sheer force of wit and timing, they elevated jokes that would flatline in ordinary hands. Trading gags like a latter-day Rowan and Martin, they even made unforgivably tired punchlines (the Snuggie, Paranormal Activity) forgivable. We compiled their best moments, so try them on for size, clotheswhores! (Update: Video removed by request of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.)
