Last year, there were rumors that NBC’s Jimmy Fallon was going to host the Oscars on ABC and this year AMPAS and ABC asked the other Jimmy, who has a show on their network, to host Hollywood’s biggest night. He said yes.
Although it could be a prank being played on the prankster because hours after his Tweet, there still has been no press release from The Academy confirming their decision. Things that make you go hmmmm?
As much as I like Jimmy Kimmel and I think he will do a great job (if they nominate movies that people have seen), I still think the honor should’ve gone to Central Intelligence and Jumanji’s Kevin Hart and The Rock to do the deed.
Emma Thompson, Kate Winslet and Juliette Binoche have all admitted that they keep their Oscar statuettes in their bathrooms, and Richard Dreyfuss showed us the cool place where he keep his.
The actor won his award in 1978 for The Goodbye Girl, so you would think after having it for almost 40 years, he would know a good place to keep it out of the wrong people’s Jaws. He does as he explained his secret hiding place as, “Some people keep their prized positions in safes, but safes are the first place the robbers will look.”
Although now that he shared his secret with us, he is going to have to find a new place to display it before someone has a Close Encounters of the Third Kind with it.
The Room’s Jacob Tremblay attended the Oscars yesterday and he got star struck by BB8, R2D2, C3P0 and someone who is a 32DDD. As soon as he saw Sofia Vergara, he had to stop and meet her. By the looks of his face, it was the moment when the 9 year old became a man. I am sure that he isn’t the first boy who transformed out of boyhood to manhood when they saw her, and he won’t be the last. Far from it.
The Oscar nominations were announced today and the good news is that Quentin Tarantino did not get any nominations. The bad news is that neither did Star Wars: The Force Awakens in the categories that people care about. Which was really stupid on the Academy’s part because people would’ve tuned in to see Star Wars win an Oscar or two, who cares about The Reverant but the people who nominated it? Or Spotlight? Or Brooklyn? They might be good movies, but if no one sees them, then who cares?

Chris Rock hosted the Oscars back in 2005, and for some reason the Academy wants him back. According to Robot Butt, AMPAS wanted Jimmy Fallon, Ellen DeGeneres or Amy Schumer to host, but the latter turned it down. Moving down their list they decided to ask Rock to return as the MC and are reportedly in talks with him to do it.
I don’t get it. He hasn’t been relevant since the last time he hosted and he sucked when he had the job back then.
I could be so against it because I really wanted The Rock and Kevin Hart to do it. Not only are they perfect choice, but they have a movie out around the same time. They are relevant unlike Rock.
What do you think of Rock hosting the Oscars again? And did you even remember he hosted the Oscars once upon a time?
UPDATE: AMPAS confirmed he’s hosting the Oscars this year.
