It’s only been a couple of days since the Academy Awards, and returns are coming in positive for Hugh Jackman‘s job as Oscar host. Seeing as how they like new hosts each year, though, who will get the job next year? Could it possibly be the best man of them all, and the ultimate master of ceremonies, Billy Crystal?
Being so early, and being as unlikely as it is (not to mention it’s Fox), this is to be taken with an entire salt mine but — Roger Friedman of Fox News is reporting that he has heard from multiple sources that Mr. Crystal might just be willing to talk about making a glorious return.
Crystal hasn’t hosted since 2004 and was seemingly done with the show that hadn’t been faring so well. Apparently Jackman’s positive performance may have just given it the boost that Crystal needed to consider.
Personally, I thought this past show was one of, if not the worst shows I’ve ever seen. While most of the awards worked out alright, the actual show was 90% unwatchable, with only three or four memorable, entertaining, and positive points in the broadcast. Maybe it’s just me, but I’m one of those people who actually looks forward to Oscar night and was horribly let down by the offering.
