Poll: Who should host the next Oscars? Will Smith? Justin Bieber?
Now that the Oscars are over, the post-mortems are written and sourpusses have crucified the last telecast's hosts, it's time to start asking: who should be the next lamb to the slaughter the next host?
Should Anne Hathaway and James Franco be welcomed back to try, try again? What about recruiting one of the tried-and-true Oscar hosts? Recently, on "The View," Whoopi Goldberg revealed that the academy has asked her to return in recent years, but she said she would only do so if Billy Crystal agreed to co-host. He didn't. In fact, Crystal has made it clear that he doesn't want the job solo either, but we're putting him on our list anyway. Goldberg too.
Hey, since Oscarland is the last province on Earth not yet conquered by Justin Bieber, should it just be surrendered to the Bieb? Personally, I'm rooting for Will Smith, but I think he's too smart to step up.
