: According to imdb.com, Jack hosted both the 1944 and the 1947 Academy Awards. The 1944 show states that he hosted the "overseas broadcast". Probably something to do with the war? He must have been a tough act to follow in 1947 - no host was selected for 1948!

Thanks, Bud. I knew about the 1947 hosting stint, because on Jack's regular program which was on a few nights after the Oscar ceremony, one of the "head honchos" of the Academy of Arts and Sciences drops by the Benny program....and accusingly informs Jack that there's an Oscar missing!
