Ahhh, wouldn’t this be wonderful??
Justin Timberlake is everywhere these days — not that we’re complaining!! With the release of his new album, SNL performances, and what Jimmy Fallon dubbed “Timberweek,” the Suit & Tie singer has been hitting airwaves big time!
Next stop? The Oscars. Well, maybe!
“Getting Justin to host would now be a huge coup for the Oscars. He’d been considered before, but they always thought he was too young and not seasoned enough.”
But thanks to his success as SNL host, things may have changed:
“Now, he’s the frontrunner for the job — after showing he knows how to sing, dance, host, and improvise on the spot."
This newlywed is definitely a better choice than this year’s host Seth MacFarlane, but an insider close to Justin revealed that these rumors are “premature and ridiculous.”
We're not entirely sure how reliable this information is and are inclined to believe this is just speculation. But who are we kidding? Justin as Oscar Host would make our year! May the Oscar force be with you, JT!
