Billy Crystal Wants Fewer Oscar Wins Broadcast

When we talked to Billy Crystal in December about then-incoming Oscar hosts James Franco and Anne Hathaway, he had one important piece of advice for them: "Look like you want to be there." (Alas, it appears that Franco didn't listen.) Since the broadcast, however, Crystal has come up with some more suggestions for the Oscar show, and he says "it might be fun" to host it one more time. "I think the show needs to change," he told the AP. "There's too many awards and it has to sort of freshen itself up, and if I can be a part of that, that would be great." Potentially superfluous Sound Design nominees, you're on notice. [AP]
