Crystal To Host Oscars Again

— Posted by John Campea

Hollywood.Com reports:

With planning for next year’s 76th annual Academy Awards ceremony well under way, veteran comedian Billy Crystal is once again being tapped to host the 2004 telecast, according to a press release from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. This marks his eighth time as host, the last time being in 2000 at the 72nd annual awards show, and a reunion of sorts for Crystal and show producer Joe Roth. Crystal and Roth last worked together on the 2001 comedy America’s Sweethearts, which Roth directed and Crystal starred in. The 76th annual awards show is scheduled to air live from the Kodak Theater in Hollywood on ABC Feb. 29.

I’m not the biggest Billy Crystal fan in the world, but I must admit that I think he’s done a great job everytime he’s hosted the Oscars. Steve Martin would be my next choice, just as long as they NEVER let Whoopi near the theatre again.

"I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don't have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my daughter go now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you."
