After Seth MacFarlane’s Oscar-hosting received a chilly reception in the wake of everybody loving Tina Fey and Amy Poehler’s performances as Golden Globes hosts last month, you’d expect the Oscar people to have been on the phone with Fey and Poehler’s agents the second that monologue ended Sunday night. But the odds of a Fey/Poehler Oscars are looking pretty slim after an interview Tina Fey just gave to The Huffington Post:
Interviewer: Is it a possibility that you and Amy Poehler could wind up hosting the Oscars next year?Fey: … 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 …Interviewer: It’s disappointing to hear, “No way.” I was hoping for at least “a one in a million chance.”Fey: I wish I could tell you there was.
So, there you have it. We won’t get a Fey/Poehler Oscars in 2014. So, I guess Louis C.K. is who we’re all rooting for to get that job now?
