Looking Forward to Oscars
News recently came out that Chris Rock is out as host of the 2006 Oscar telecast. (BTW, don't forget BugMeNot if you don't want to register to read that article.) The article mentions Billy Crystal, Steve Martin, and Whoopi Goldberg, all former hosts, as forming the "short list" for hosting. Well, of them, I'd definitely cast my vote with Steve-o. I'm a huge Martin fan. Regardless, someone recently mentioned a different idea in a conversation I was having. I can't remember who brought it up -- so if you read this, and it was you, chime in -- but it might have been my friend Annabel Lee. Anyway, I liked the suggestion, so figured I'd toss it out here:
I mean, sure, they may be hesitant after the Dave Letterman debacle (though I liked him), seeing as this is another TV talk show host. But Dave and Jon are way different. And Hollywood has a love affair with Stewart. Plus he's hip, irreverent, and still intelligent. I'd love it. I say they make that short list a little longer!
What do y'all think?
