ooops GREG the BUNNY.
Alf, Ted the Bear, Fred the Bunny, and Burt and Ernie. Not in that order.
Pair Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway. And have McFarlane arrested if he shows up within 500 feet of the ceremony.
MARTIN SHORT, MARTIN SHORT, MARTIN SHORT
Queen Latifah or Jamie Foxx
Craig Ferguson and Geoff
Phil Robertson and Bob Barker
Robert Downey jr.
Martin Short, Martin Short, Martin Short! The man can do everything: sing, dance, act, tell jokes and as a recent issue of Vanity Fair pointed out, he's loved by seemingly everyone in Hollywood. Perhaps Jiminy Glick would do an interview or two on tape with the nominees...the possibilities are endless.
Charlie Sheen. Everybody loves a comeback story, especially one that. . . look out, he's going to BLOW!
Who cares to watch a bunch of arrogant overpaid people give out awards to themselves. Should put on a worthwhile awards show. Maybe a show giving out awards for partriotism, or volunteerism or something eles that means something.
Since it's just a show of politics, how about President Obama? He can read a teleprompter as well as anyone.
Who gives a S!@#. Maybe it won't be 4 hrs long!!! A bunch of disconnected rich people giving each other awards about pretending to be something.
Alec Baldwin as long as he doesn't talk about his political agenda. He's pretty happy to make a fool off himself on stage and would be hilarious.
Michelle Obama because we don't get to see her often enough. (Blechhh)
It's the Oscars, it use to be a glamorous awards show. Now it's just a dumping ground for has been comedians.
Jerry Seinfeld. Oscar host is a stand-up's job and he has the experience. Plus, he has done television and the Oscar ceremony is a TV show.
Jennifer Aniston. She looks great and appeals to almost every demographic. Who cares if she is funny or can dance, but if she can all the better. I could watch her for four hours no problem. I would probably tape it and watch it again and again.
Michelle Obama. She obviously thinks she should be in the spotlight.
It would be awesome just viewing the pained expressions on lib celebrities faces if it was Rush. Or Pat Buchanan! Everybody in America would watch to see the explosions!
Kidding aside, I agree Kevin Spacey would probably be great, he's a class act, a hearkening back to the Hope/Carson years when they made an effort to keep it classy rather than oh-so pathetically hip.
David Hyde Pierce would be cool too. You need someone who can deliver subtle well-written humorous lines. So, they need new writers as well as better hosts.
Martin Short and Bill Hader
Mel Gibson. The more K-word jokes, the better.
Conan O'Brian killed twice at the Emmy's. Either Conan or Tina/Amy.
I thought that MacFarlane was excellent (excepting a few minutes of bla,bla,bla, to music that I doubt he wrote); I can't imagine doing a three and half hour live show with one of the largest audiences for the period.
His singing voice was only exceeded by his dancing ability.
Couldn't possibly care less who hosts "liberal hypocrites on parade". They won't see a dime of my money either. Pukes, one and all.
I VOTE FOR TED NUGENT
What about Ted the Bear? would be awesome
Billy Crystal............................Ellen...................Ryan Seacrest
All the others mentioned turn my stomach.
Conan O'Brien is the funniest, most genuine guy on television. Ask Conan!
I say...BRING PETER BRADY BACK!!! He was awesome.
Pres. Obama should host next year. He's ubiquitous on TV as is, he will probably figure out a way to be on the show anyway, and he'll be able to rub elbows with his fellow elitist, mega-donor Hollywood types. Then I can put on a movie knowing that Obama would turn the show into all about him, therefore I wouldn't miss anything, and then go to bed because if I watched the present-day Mr. Narcissus, he'd put me to sleep anyway.
Ryan Seacrest, Mario Lopez or Tom Bergeron - they are seasoned emcees already and could keep the show running on a timely basis. Mario especially is a very good dancer.
Who says the host has to be a comedian?
I was very impressed with Seth. He was smooth, seamless, confident and relaxed on every single thing. This was a huge job and it displayed his vast talent. (I had no idea.) The entire show was very well done (even when I thought something was going badly it turned out hilarious.) If he hosts again it would be to the advantage of the Oscars. I vote for Seth again.
Robert Downey, Jr.
All your suggestions are tasteless. I will choose next year.
Robert Downey, Jr. has proven that he's up to the task of awarding. Let him host the show, too. Get Samuel L. Jackson up there, they play off each other pretty well!
Candy Crowley. And she can decide the winners herself, without all that bother of letting Academy people vote.
Jimmy Fallon AND Craig Ferguson!
Brian Regan - Absolutely brilliant, clean, non-political, non-offensive and HILARIOUS !
Seth's joke about Lincoln was as distasteful a joke about this nation's greatest President and UNITER, as possible. It almost seemed like he used the joke just to set up his quick comeback, it was forced, phony & HIGHLY offensive. And the crowd was very underwhelmed by his Napolean reference, just pathetic how badly it all failed.
Seinfeld, Larry the Cable Guy, Conan O'Brien
It should be me, Stevie Wonder!
Do we have to have another America-hating leftist?
I loved Billy Crystal and enjoyed the Oscars much more when he was hosting. Doubt he will ever do it again. Would second Tina Fey and Amy Poehler though if Billy didn't want to do it.
I didn't like McFarlane at all. I could see that the actors were uncomfortable with some of his comments and so was I.
I don't see why Hollyweird just doesn't have Moooshelle do it as she seems to be their hero. What a skank!
I voted for Tina Fey and that other Unknown to me so that I will make sure to not watch it again. I would not watch Tina Fey take her clothes off so I certainly would not watch her trying to be funny with them on!
Trey Parker and Matt Stone. No one rips on celebrities better than them. No one.
Stephen Colbert. And those saying Poehler and Fey are morons. What a borefest.
Billy Crystal the best ever...
I believe Martin Short would be a fantastic 'Oscar' host.
How about...... Pee Wee Herman, Barney, and the Purple Tele-tubby ?
Eddie Murphy, Steve Carell, Reba McEntire, Barbara Walters, Carol Burnett, Ryan Seacrest
Ted Nugent, ratings would be awesome and would put those libs in their place!!!
The AAwards are certainly most deserving of an equally fitting and glamorous host: (1) Baghdad Bob or (2) for just the sheer genius on stage, Honey Boo Boo.
They should do away with the broadcast altogether and go online. And before the winners are announced, the online viewers can vote, then they can compare the viewers' votes to the Academy winner. I didn't enjoy hosting the show. It was a bore. I can't people watch that crap.
Billy Crystal should be annointed host infinitum. He has a rapport with actors, his humor has an edge that stings but doesn't go too far and his pre-produced packages are always entertaining.
Ryan Secrest , an excellent host and makes it more about the show..then himself
How about the Hamburger Helper Oven Mitt.
Why not the First Lady? And Harvey Weinstein can follow her around and bay at the moon.
Even better: why not Alister Crowley's illegitimate daughter Candy? She did such a fine job in the presidential debate season that when her network decides to fire all the imbeciles she will have a job.
Or how about the Carney and then all the network talking heads can sing and dance and hand out idols?
Or even---and more importantly---who cares?
The Reverend Mike LiToris
Janelle from MTV's Teen Mom.
David Letterman. He is a class act and a comedian. Bring some prestige back to the awards shows and stop letting them be a drunken slam fest!
Sarah Palin. I wouldn't want her to run the country, but she would make for a great Oscar Host! My friends and I don't watch the Oscars; we can't stand the "self-important" actors. I think Sarah hosting would attract more of the folks like us and would improve the ratings!
Seth MacFarlane was perfect. Second choice: Steve Carell.
Bring in a HALLIGRAM, or make one) of BOB HOPE .
There is NO ONE that my friends and I can come up with that has any REAL TALENT for comedy
to host an event like the OSCARS.
BILLY CRYSTAL IS THE ONLY ONE that come close. OR perhaps MS. CAROL BERNETTE.
ALL of our great talents are passing. There really is NO contempory that can match our greats.!
The administration for the OSCARS must be beating these people up, to have most of these people
them, they'll never host the OSCARS again.
The world is too PC. There's a limit to how tightly you can pucker a butthole, people. Seth MacFarlane did brilliantly. With highly entertaining, harmless ease, he managed to anger feminazis and the Jewish Anti-Defamation League in one fell swoop. I'd consider that a success. I bet Ricky Gervais is jealous. They should pay up enough cash to bring back Seth, his buttery singing voice, and musical theater dance moves. I'm sure he can't say no to a hefty sum.
In short, bring Seth MacFarlane back at any cost. He made the Oscars entertaining and, ironically, classy again.
Manti Te'o's girlfriend.
The Diceman or Howard Stern....
Zac Gallifanakis. Very clever and quick witted. His stand up on SNL was awesome.
Tom Hanks, Will Ferrell, Zach Galifianakis, just to name a few
Good Riddence --- Seth McFarlane
His shows are disgusting !
Get someone with CLASS.
Melissa McCarthy. She appeals to a younger demographic (as the Oscars are always pandering these days), is a gifted comedienne.... And actually makes movies. Give another woman a shot!
Kevin Spacey would be a terrific host ... he's a class act from A-Z!
BRING BACK SETH!
Really now, you thought his show was crass? His jokes edgy? What did you expect from the creator of Family Guy? It...was...funny!
Rush Limbaugh - he would bring balance to the libtard convention
Get Bob Hope or Johnny Carson
Jeff Dunham with his pals Achmed and Walter, could be hysterical
"Uncle Ted" Nugent
