Tina Fey, paid a visit to Letterman last night (February 26, 2013), may seem like the perfect choice to host the 2014 Academy Awards after her much-talked about and adored stint at the Golden Globes (with partner in crime Amy Poehler), but she told the Huffington Post that it’s just not going to happen.
Whether it’s the pressure of having the eyes of the world judging or the fact that Seth MacFarlane got blasted by just about every major–and minor–media source after his hosting gig this past weekend, Fey isn’t saying. But she has made it clear she doesn’t want the job, no matter what William Shatner thinks.
“It’s an honor to be ‘Shatnered’, but I just feel like that gig is so hard,” she said. “Especially for, like, a woman — the amount of months that would be spent trying on dresses alone . . . No way.”
The Huffington Post was disappointed, as they responded to her answer “It’s disappointing to hear, ‘No way.’ I was hoping for at least ‘a one in a million chance.’
To which Fey responded, “I wish I could tell you there was.”
Incidentally, MacFarlane also tweeted “No way,” to a fan who asked him if he’d host the Oscars again.
