We still want The Muppets to host…but Betty would be an EXTREMELY CLOSE second choice! Or maybe she can host WITH Kermit, Miss Piggy, and all the others!!! EPIC!
A very lucky Perezcious Reader got the wonderful opportunity to see Betty White speak at Southern California's Distinguished Speaker Series in Pasadena last night….and sure enough, the subject of the Oscars came up!
Betty actually hadn't heard that Eddie Murphy had quit the Oscars yet, but when event host Doug McIntyre asked if she'd like to take over for Eddie, Ms. White had the following to say:
"Who do I call?"
You hear that, Academy President Tom Sherak? Betty's up for the job!
Spread the word! Betty White and/or The Muppets as Oscar host!!!!!!!!!!
