Poll: Who should host the Oscars?
Deadline Hollywood reports that Hugh Jackman has turned down an offer to host the next Oscar ceremony because he's "too busy preparing the sequel to 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine,' which 20th Century Fox is mobilizing to begin shooting in late February or early March. Problem is that the Oscars will be held February 27th."
There's been much buzzing about Betty White, but she's already pooh-poohed that, so forget it.
Personally, I think Will Smith should do it. He's the biggest movie star in the world right now, extremely likable and a terrific comedian and entertainer.
I asked our forum posters who they think might be tapped. The responses had quite a range, from Adam Sandler to Mo'Nique. Read responses here. Below, I pooled some of their top suggestions into a poll so we can seek your view.
