Apparently Jimmy Fallon is up for discussion as the next host of the Oscars. According to the Los Angeles Times, ABC has “raised objections” to the late-night talk show host (a show that is on NBC, ABC’s rival). Hmm…
Apparently Disney Chief Executive, Bob Iger, (ABC is owned by Disney) isn’t too pleased with the idea of a rival talk show man hosting the event when Fallon is neck and neck for ratings as it is with Jimmy Kimmel.
What does this mean for Fallon? Well according to Variety notes, ABC doesn’t have the last word. Meaning that Fallon could possibly be the next host. But again, nothing has been confirmed. Eddie Murphy wasn’t approved as the host until September, so there you go.
Who would you want to see host this prized event? Share your thoughts.
And launch the gallery to see a previous Oscars host, James Franco, at work.
