Tina Fey won't host the Oscars

Feb 27 2013, 2:26pm CST | by

Tina Fey has no desire to host the Oscars.

The '30 Rock' writer and star was tipped to take on the high profile job in 2014 by last Sunday's (02.24.13) presenter Seth MacFarlane, after she won rave reviews for co-hosting the Golden Globes alongside her friend Amy Poehler earlier this month, but she thinks the job would be too stressful.

Speaking to The Huffington Post, the 42-year-old star said: "I just feel like that gig is so hard. Especially for, like, a woman - the amount of months that would be spent trying on dresses alone . . . No way."

The 'Admission' actress admitted that while she "had fun" presenting with Amy, it is unlikely she will change her mind about the Oscars.

She said: "I wish I could tell you there was."

This year's host Seth, who spent five months preparing for the event, previously revealed he will never take on the job at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood again.

The 'Family Guy' creator - who has received a mixed response for his anchoring of the prestigious ceremony - had a lot of "fun" at the helm of the Academy Awards, but insisted it isn't an experience he wants to repeat.

He tweeted: "Would you host the #Oscars again if asked? No way. Lotta fun to have done it, though. (sic)"

Previous hosts have also included Billy Crystal, James Franco, Anne Hathaway, Alec Baldwin, Steve Martin, Hugh Jackman, Jon Stewart and Ellen DeGeneres.

Lindsay Lohan Reveals Hilarious Five-Year Plan: Mean Girls 2, An Oscar, Probably a Unicorn

Sep 25 2014 2:09pm CDT | Source: The Hollywood Gossip

Even though Lindsay Lohan's stage debut in London was an utter disaster, the troubled "actress" remains as delusional as ever when discussing her future. In a recent interview to promote her thus-far disastrous turn in David Mamet's Speed the Plow, LiLo discussed her five year plan and it's every bit as insane as you might expect. "In five years I would like to be married and have children and hopefully be at the ...

Lindsay Lohan forgot her lines during the first performance of ‘Speed-the-Plow’

Sep 25 2014 6:35am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Ugh, where to start? Last night was Lindsay Lohan’s first night of her London show, Speed-the-Plow. The reviews were pretty bad, which we expected. Apparently, Lindsay kept forgetting her lines. To the point where even when she was trying to be serious and dramatic, the audience laughed at her. Some declared her an “embarrassment.” Some say that if she simply learns her lines, the play might be okay. Oh, and guess what? The ticket prices were dram ...

Lindsay Lohan: I’ll “Harass” Tina Fey To Write Mean Girls Sequel — Here’s My Idea

Sep 24 2014 8:56pm CDT | Source: Gossip Cop

(Time Out London) Lindsay Lohan has an idea for a Mean Girls sequel that sounds equal parts awesomely ridiculous and ridiculously awesome. As Gossip Cop recently reported, though Lohan and Tina Fey recently spent time together for the film’s anniversary, there are no active talks for a follow-up. Lohan, when asked about the flick in a new interview, says, “People really love the movie: how do you top that?” “I was with Tina Fey the other day and I said ...

Everyone Hates Ariana Grande–Even Her Life Coach!

Sep 22 2014 4:47pm CDT | Source: GossipGirls.com

People who define themselves as a “life coach” are usually former-weed-dealers-slash-yoga-fanatics who feel that their super chill vibe qualifies them as some sort of expert. And those who would employ such a person aren’t much brighter, in my opinion. I bring this up because even someone as irrelevant as a “life coach” had too much pride to deal with client Ariana Grande. “He just couldn’t take it anymore,” says a spy close to the coach, who was tasked with ...

8 (4) Films That Remind Us That All Families Are Dysfunctional

Sep 20 2014 1:07pm CDT | Source: Oh No They Didn't!

Starting today, the film This Is Where I Leave You takes a look at a family reunited during the aftermath of its patriarch's death. Heavy stuff, right? But from the preview (above) and the 2009 book that serves as source material, it clearly applies a lighter touch. The cast is, without a doubt, grade A, with Tina Fey, Jason Bateman, that gangly guy from Girls, and Jane Fucking Fonda, but the premise is, well ... haven't you seen this movie be ...

You can hear KCBS Entertainment Editor Jan Wahl’s movie reviews on KCBS All News 740AM and 106.9FM Fridays at 8:53am & 4:53pm. SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS)— From “A Majority of One” to “Annie Hall” and “My Big Fat Greek Wedding”, there are wonderful comedies celebrating and satirizing our ethnic differences.

Ariana Grande ‘seems like a toddler throwing a tantrum’ to everyone, basically

Sep 19 2014 8:20am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

This is going to be shocking, I know, but Ariana Grande is a diva. And I guess this the week when all of the media outlets decided to call her out. To be fair to Ariana, she might not be AS horrible as “sources” claim. But where’s there’s smoke, there’s fire, and people are starting to go on the record about her shenanigans. Like the Australian photographer who was threatened by Ariana’s goons after she pitched a fit about how she looked in ONE photo. Page Six had a newish s ...
