Just like Seth MacFarlane, Tina Fey is saying “no way” to a potential Oscars hosting gig. Many fans expressed that they wished she and Amy Poehler would take their turn as Academy Awards hostesses in 2014 following their successful turn at the Golden Globes, but Fey has quickly dashed those hopes.
“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,” Fey told The Huffington Post. When pressed for a “one in a million chance” that she and Poehler will reconsider, Fey added, “I wish I could tell you there was.”
That’s a shame, because Fey and Poehler really do make a wonderful team. But a lot can change in a year, and maybe something could happen to make the former “30 Rock” star actually reconsider. In the meantime, we’ll hold out hope that Neil Patrick Harris will endear himself to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and get himself a hosting gig on the Oscars stage. Seriously, that man knows how to host an awards show.
