Jimmy Fallon in talks to host the Oscars - report
ABC has apparently raised objections to having the star and producer from rival NBC anchor the Oscar broadcast, but the network has no authority to veto the choices. Typically, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences chooses the producer and the producer, in turn, chooses the host.
The last few years, the show has opted to go with film stars as hosts, but maybe it's time the show brought back an honest-to-goodness comedian. Fallon has previously hosted the 2010 Emmy Awards.
