Its been announced that Jimmy Fallon will host the Oscars this year.
A few Academy big wigs want to hire the Late Night host to emcee, but some political dramaz has gotten in the way of Fallon taking the stage.
Apparently ABC, who is broadcasting the Oscars this year, is scawd of a wittle competition! We’re told:
“ABC is owned by Disney, and Disney chief executive Bob Iger is said to be unhappy with the idea of showcasing Fallon, whose show competes with ABC’s late-night show featuring Jimmy Kimmel. Fallon and Kimmel are in a neck-and-neck competition for viewers.”
The network would simply hire Jimmy K to run the show instead of Jimmy F, buuuut Kimmel can’t because of some kind of unspoken rule that forbids the same person to host the Oscars and the Emmys.
We think he will do an amazing job and hes so funny too.
