Tina Fey and Amy Poehler Hosting the Oscars?
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler ended their multi-year hosting gig on the Golden Globes last year, but their fancy-Hollywood-awards MCing duties may not quite be finished. Time and multiple other outlets are reporting that Academy Awards producer David Hill hinted that next year’s show will have not one but two hosts, sparking speculation it will be Upper Darby darling Fey and her partner-in-crime Poehler.
“There will be multiple hosts for sure – there will be two,” said Hill. “Two is better than one. … Just imagine, you’re in there. One of your hosts drops dead from cardiac arrest. What do you do? Second host goes on! And you keep going. … Note to self. Check out their heart rates.”
Though that’s all the info we’re getting, Entertainment Weekly is betting on Fey and Poehler or Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele of Key & Peele.
The last time a duo hosted the Oscars was in 2011, when James Franco and Anne Hathaway did it. Anything would be better than that–but few could out-do Fey and Poehler. We’ll be crossing our fingers until the updates roll in.
