The Final Numbers Are In! Betty Does Even Better Than Expected

Boo!

Despite Betty White's uber-successful stint on Saturday Night Live - which brought in over 12.1 million viewers - and a Facebook campaign that already has 56,000 supporters, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences claim that they're not letting anyone tell them who should be next year's host for the Academy Awards!

Spokeswoman Leslie Unger was a giant buzzkill when she announced that instead of letting the people, who actually tune in and are responsible for ratings, decide, they are going to stand by their formal protocol and allow the show's producers to select next year's Oscar host!

We suggest that if fans are as serious as we think they are about the Baddest Bitch getting the gig, they should BOYCOTT the ceremony!!

Damn the man! Keep the Betty White Fever alive!!

    I'm sure the “ old bird “ probably needs more $$ about now. Can't see her getting that much $$ from her re`runs!! She's probably thrilled with all this attention. Good luck to her!! :)

    I love Betty White…she is freaking funny…

    I don't know about ya'll, but I'm kinda sick of this woman. I used to adore her. I think she is really funny and talented, but ever since The Proposal, she's been super over-exposed like some tween sensation. So annoying! Maybe it's just because Perez likes her so much, that's probably why I can't stand her anymore.

    And thats why no one watches the Academy Awards anyway!



  6. 6

    Once again you prove how amazingly stupid you are "Perez Hilton." Betty, Queen of Everything, does not sing opera, she does not perform brain surgery, or rocket science equations, she also does not do the kind of comedy that works a room. She is a comedic situation actress. Why do you push so hard to put her in an area where she would fail? Can't she just be amazing without everyone expecting this 88 year old woman to prove herself? SHE ALREADY HAS! Now let her pick and choose her own venues and we can just love her and be amazed by her. You're an asshole.

    The Oscars are all about the egos of Hollywood stroking each other. They would NEVER EVER allow anybody to suggest anything to them. This is why the show has been such a miserable failure as a viewing experience for the last few decades.

    Is anyone else sick of this old bag yet?



  10. 10

    your stupid perez. very stupid.

    I am not sure she could handle the physical demands of being the host at her age. The hosts typically dance and move around on stage a lot. No offense to her. I would doubt any of us could do it at that age. And I agree with the Academy. It is their show, their gig. Let them pick who they want to host it.

    Fuck that old hag…. Who gives a fuck about her anyways?



  13. 13

    All this attention is gonna give Betty a stroke or heart attack; keep us advised Perez…



  14. 14

    lemme say that
    fuck the oscars !
    it boring anyway
    no betty no me…to bad for them

    Re: PENNSYLVANIA GIRL – pretty well said

    Betty is 88 1/2 yrs old. the Academy Awards are what 3-4 hrs long thats a lot of stress for anyone let alone someone her age. Does Betty even WANT to host? who knows. SNL was a gift to us now let her have some peace she doesn't need to prove anything



  16. 16

    who cares about the Oscars anyway it's a snoozefest!

    Never in my life have I watched the Academy Awards. If BW hosted though, I'd be tuned in with popcorn and wine. =)

    betty is a tv actress- has nothing to do with movies or film. her on snl was cute, but enough already. she's just a sad reminder of the ravages of aging.

    THIS IS STUPID. BETTY WHITE IS AN ACTRESSES. SHE ISNT AN M.C. AND THOUGH SHE IS TALENTED SHE IS NOT RIGHT FOR THE AWARD SHOW. GET REAL. JESUS.
