SNL Captain Lorne Michaels Rejects The Oscars!

| Filed under: Jimmy FallonOscars

lorne michaels wont produce oscars

Sorry, comedy fans!

After much courting, super close sources say Saturday Night Live god Lorne Michaels has declined the offer to produce the 85th annual Academy Awards ceremony!

This comes on the heels of the rumor that Lorne was interested if Jimmy Fallon was placed as host.

But Jimbo wasn't too keen on the idea, saying:

"It's an honor to be asked by the Academy, but it's not my year."

Sigh… well whoever will they get now!??

Maybe… Perez?? ;)

Okay… okay… well who would U wanna see up there making corny jokes??

We were DYING for The Muppets last year, but whoever takes the challenge for the Oscars of 2013 better be golden! It's the 85th anniversary!!

    A great idea… for 1978. Glad they'll be using someone else.

    I tried re-tweeting something to you, Perez, messed it up and it ended up as a blank tweet so I deleted it. It was a picture of Madonna performing in 1985, for Keith Haring's birthday. It was a lovely picture.
