    Get NPH!!!!

    • Amanda

      Exactly what I was thinking. He is leaving the door open for NPH!

      • jenn

        I agree when in doubt bring in Neil to host your show!

    • thirdman

      I so agree!!!!!!!!!!!

    • juniper

      I think they will..I hope they will!

      The Oscars cannot get the Emmys sloppy seconds. It is supposed to be on a higher level. First the tony’s, then the emmys. Enough with NPH. Can we get a Neil Patrick Harris break already. One person should not host all the shows consecutively.

      • fancypants

        thank you. I like NPH as an actor, but i don’t see what’s so great about him as a host. after a while, singing and dancing gets corny at an awards the show. for the tony’s, yes, it make sense, but not at other shows that dont specifically honor musical theater.

      • M

        Yeah, love NPH, but this would be overkill….

  • sweettoons

    This makes me sad… Hugh was one of my favorite hosts. I actually watched and ejoyed the oscars last year.:(

  • Sam

    Billy Crystal!!!

    • ed

      EWWWWWW!! Whats wrong with you!

      • DS

        I concur!

    • zach

      what’s wrong with YOU people? Billy was easily the best ever. It’s been so long. Bring him back.

  • April

    NPH isn’t right for this gig, great though he is. Let’s go for someone a little more…traditional? But not boring or half dead. HOW ‘BOUT A CHICK???

    • Catherine

      How about Jane Lynch?

      • People for a Sanitary America

        I love Jane Lynch!! I’d support that vote!

    • zach

      Queen Latifah is always really pleasant and has a great personality. Maybe if she is nominated Mo’Nique should host, because she is also entertaining (granted nominees never host).

  • April

    and by traditional I in no way meant straight as opposed to gay. I was re-reading my comment and I thought maybe someone would infer that I meant something by that remark!! I just meant older, more of a traditional movie-star.

    • Daniel

      ELLEN Again!

      • toodles

        hell to the no

      • aimee

        What TV needs right now is a lot, lot less Ellen.

      • Dawn

        Not going to happen now that she is a guest judge on Idol.

      • Jack

        shes not a guest judge…shes a judge

      • Dawn

        That’s what I meant. I accidentally typed guest by mistake.

  • Susan

    too bad, at least he left on top!

  • Jenn

    Ricky Gervais!!!

    • LindaT

      Good choice, but Ricky Gervais is going to host the Golden Globes, so he won’t be allowed to host the Oscars in the same year.

  • Hayley

    Last year’s musical numbers were win… too bad Hugh isn’t hosting this time… NPH would be great!

  • stella


  • Alisha

    Oh! So sad! I never have watched the Oscars all the way through, until Hugh hosted. I didn’t want to miss anything he was going to do next!

  • Dan

    Enough time has elapsed since “Uma, Oprah.”. Time to give Letterman a second shot.

    • Kathie

      Somehow I don’t think this is the year they are going to invite Dave back.

      • mscisluv

        Uh yeah…Letterman is a pretty dumb idea, all things considered.

  • Chip

    Amy Poehler and Tina Fey!! How great would that be

    • Trubie

      I think they’d be better for a future Globes or Emmys gig.

  • fancypants

    WANDA SYKES or STEPHEN COLBERT!!!! no crystal, please no degeneres.

  • EJ

    How about NONE OF THE ABOVE. Someone who has never hosted an awards show would be a nice change. Jay Leno maybe?

    • Flyer

      Leno? No thanks. We want the audience and TV viewers to stay awake, not die of boredom.

      • Sean

        Where’s Johnny Carson when you really need him?

      • Sue

        How about Simon Cowell, I love that guy!!!!
