It’s been a mere three days since the Oscars aired and people are already chiming in with their opinion on who should host next year’s show, but one thing is certain, Tina Fey will not be hosting it.
After doing a fantastic job hosting the Golden Globes, people were salivating at the thought of the dream team of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler taking their hosting chops to the 2014 Oscars, but the 30 Rock star, Fey, has turned down that dream.
Fey tells the Huffington Post:
“I just feel like that gig is so hard. Especially for, like, a woman — the amount of months that would be spent trying on dresses alone … no way.” When pressed, Fey wouldn’t even say that there’s a “one in a million chance” of her taking the stage at the Academy Awards: “I wish I could tell you there was.”
Poehler has not commented on the Oscar gig yet so there is still hope that one half will consider the idea, although let’s remember that these women have not officially been asked to host the Oscars. One has to understand why a star may think twice before accepting the Oscar hosting gig since they are usually put under a microscope when hosting.
What do you think of Fey saying no to the Oscars? Who would be your pick for the job?
