Tina Fey: 'No way' she'd host Oscars
05:00 AM, Feb 27, 2013
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were such a hit as hosts of the Golden Globes that there’s a lot of chatter about how great they’d be as Oscar hosts.
But when Huffington Post writer Mike Ryan interviewed Fey for her upcoming movie Admission, she made it pretty clear that’s a gig that isn’t going to happen.
He asked her, “Is it a possibility that you and Amy Poehler could wind up hosting the Oscars next year? I don’t know how that works with NBC, since the Golden Globes were on the same network as both of your shows. Can you two go host the Oscars on ABC if you wanted to?”
And she replied, “No, you can. But 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.”
He then added, “It’s disappointing to hear ‘No way.’ I was hoping for at least ‘a one in a million chance.’ ”
Said Fey, “I wish I could tell you there was.”
Let’s hope she changes her mind in, oh, about a year.
