Tina Fey Says There's "No Way" She's Hosting the Oscars

After Seth MacFarlane's Oscar-hosting received a chilly reception in the wake of everybody loving Tina Fey and Amy Poehler's performances as Golden Globes hosts last month, you'd expect the Oscar people to have been on the phone with Fey and Poehler's agents the second that monologue ended Sunday night. But the odds of a Fey/Poehler Oscars are looking pretty slim after an interview Tina Fey just gave to The Huffington Post:

Interviewer: Is it a possibility that you and Amy Poehler could wind up hosting the Oscars next year?
Fey: … I just feel like that gig is so hard. Especially for, like, a woman — the amount of months that would be spent trying on dresses alone … no way …

Interviewer: It's disappointing to hear, "No way." I was hoping for at least "a one in a million chance."
Fey: I wish I could tell you there was.

So, there you have it. We won't get a Fey/Poehler Oscars in 2014. So, I guess Louis C.K. is who we're all rooting for to get that job now?

    I wouldn't wish that on Louie.

    • Colin Perkins

      Agreed. Don't you think his material would just be branded as offensive/sexist/racist the next day too?

    Not wishing for Louie to get that gig either, plus I'm not gonna get my hopes up. The people who put that together don't have him on their radar for that. Don't believe me? It took Seth MacFarlane getting Ted for him to come up and get it despite his being just as capable years ago. There's a better chance of Fallon, and he's not getting it either cause ABC won't let it happen. That's the person I'd like to see get it if it can't be Tina and Amy.

    Kevin Spacey. Charming, funny, recognizable to even casual moviewatchers, and (since he's a respected member of the film community) could easily walk the line between respecting the industry and pleasing the audience.

    Plus, he can sing. Plus, he seems like might actually want do it.
