Jack Lemmon, a two-time Oscar winner, will host the 57th annual Academy Awards.

Lemmon, who won a best-supporting actor Oscar for his performance in 1955's "Mr. Roberts" and a best-actor Oscar for 1973's "Save the Tiger," was named Wednesday by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences producing team of Gregory Peck, Robert Wise, Larry Gelbart and Gene Allen.

Ten co-hosts will join Lemmon for the March 25 ceremonies at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion.
