Celebrating Thirteen Glorious, Boobtacular Years of Oscar Caliber Nerd Pandering

By Joanna Robinson | Seriously Random Lists | February 6, 2012 | Comments ()

Doesn't the lovely Ms. Tomei look a bit like a sacrificial lamb here? Like someone threw the prom queen to the chess club? Forget the Little Gold Man, she's the real prize. And though this trend obviously ignores the Male Gay Nerds and the Straight Lady Nerds (Fassbender '13!), it's some fine and fancy pandering. (To think they hired Richard Dreyfuss in '96.) So let's have a look at some of the lucky ladies who've hosted in the past and take a peek at who will be the belle of the Nerd Ball this year.

Salma Hayek (2000)

Renée Zellweger (2001)
