Not Hugh Jackson or Neil Patrick Harris: Oscars Go for These 2

stevealec

So the Oscars are returning to lowest common denominator fare: With Hugh Jackman out and Neil Patrick Harris hosting every other awards show, this year’s Academy Awards will be co-hosted by Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin, one of whom is still pretty funny. (Martin has hosted twice in the past decade). Whew — at least they stayed with a white guy though, right? (That’s sarcasm, you racists.)

      So. It would kill them to choose a woman to host the Oscars?

      Neil Patrick Harris & Ellen DeGeneres would be my Oscar night Dream Team.

      Note to whoever titled this post: Try “Hugh *Jackman*.” :-)

      OMG I would LOVE for Wanda Sykes to host one of those things, THEN I’d watch.

      I like Ellen but to me her funnyness is kinda weird. NPH is always great :)

      Neil Patrick Harris has hosted so many other award shows – she wouldn’t bring in the fressness…

      Yep, just looked it up….these two have a movie coming out that they are both staring in. Ugh, so the Oscars are a commercial now for a substandard film.
