The AMPAS just announced that Mark Wahlberg and Ted will present:

“We are happy to make it possible for Mark and Ted to make their debut appearance on the Oscar stage,” said Craig Zadan and Neil Meron. “And we won’t deny that Ted used his pull with our host to get himself the booking.”

Wahlberg and Ted starred in the hit summer comedy “Ted,” which is now the highest-grossing R-rated original comedy of all time.

“I’m excited to present an Oscar with Mark Wahlberg,” said Ted. “I’m spending the next month learning to pronounce ‘Quvenzhané.’”

    I really hope they do a bit involving trailer trash names…like which of the nominees have them. I know I’d fall over laughing.

    Yeah. Wahlberg let it slip when he was on one of the talk shows last week. I prefer surprises. Hopefully they can keep some things under wraps.

    why would Ted have to say Quvenzhane? it’s jean dujardin’s job to give the award for best actress.
