This weekend Jessica Biel is hosting the Oscars Tech Awards, otherwise known as "the one night Hollywood throws its nerd a bone by having a hot chick hand out trophies to them." Check out our gallery of geek goddesses from years past…
No matter what Bill O'Reilly says about her, Jessica Alba was super smart for hosting the Oscar Techie awards in 2008. Especially considering that, before that gig, she had only heard of the Internet through a friend of a friend.
Before starring in The Dark Knight, we bet Jake Gyllenhaal's big sis used to beat him at Batman games on Playstation, like, all the time. No wonder Maggie hosted the awards in 2007.
Rachel McAdams, who hosted the Tech Awards back in '06, is the thinking man's action heroine hottie. Did you see Red Eye? She can work her way around a high-tech thriller with the best of them.
ScarJo let her geek flag fly back when she hosted the Oscar Techies in '04. She also claims to be a huge Tim Burton fan, which adds to her aura of sultry geekiness and nerdy hipster appeal. Maybe hubby Ryan Reynolds is a bigger dork than we thought.
Jennifer Garner proved herself to be the go-to geek goddess when she starred in TV's Alias and as a super heroine on the big screen in Elektra. Did we mention what an amazing job she did reading the teleprompter at the 2004 Tech Awards?
Besides her perky beach-blond babe-ness, we suspect Kate Hudson's tech-savvy is the main reason so many guys fall long and hard for the actress. Hollywood's most beautiful second generation starlet hosted the Oscar Tech Awards back in 2003.
Charlize Theron – who hosted in 2002 – is an Academy Award Winner, she's in a stable relationship, she's drop-dead gorgeous and she's a techie? Scientists better clone her – STAT. The future of Hollywood depends on it!
In 2001, Renee Zellweger starred in a little film you may remember called Bridget Jones's Diary. We guess that was before the whole "blog craze" of the new millennium, but she still got to host the Tech Oscars.
Salma Hayek was the first mistress of tech ceremonies back in 2000. The Mexican beauty's, uh, brains made us forget all about that embarassing Y2K thing.
