The Next Oscar Host

This is straight from Zap2it, but I was reading this earlier today. I don't know if they've picked an Oscar host yet, but who would you like to see up there? And no, you can't pick Hugh Jackman because he said he aint doing it. meh. Life goes on, but gosh darn that man can sing.

QATFYG: (these are the zap2it picks. If you're beau or gal isn't on the list feel free to write him/her in)
Who should host the 2010 Academy Awards?
Russell Brand
Steve Carell
George Clooney
Steven Colbert
Billy Crystal
Will Ferrell
Tina Fey
Jamie Foxx
Ricky Gervais
Whoopi Goldberg
Tom Hanks
Steve Martin
Amy Poehler ----My Vote
Will Smith
Oprah Winfrey

**I picked Amy Poehler because I think she has the most to gain, and she could do probably the most entertaining host job.

  1. I don't actually watch the Oscars, but frankly, I agree with you. Amy Poehler has the most potential of them all. I also wouldn't mind Steven Colbert and Tina Fey.

  2. right on Adam, I think Tina Fey could do a great job, but on the other side. I feel Amy P could make more of an impact with the performance. If that makes sense.

  3. Totally makes sense.

    Somewhat unrelated, but still kind of cool: my favorite English teacher in high school lived in New York back in the day. His roommate? Tina Fey.

  4. I would say Steve Carell. I think would be one the likely candidates. He has the ability to create humor, which is a key asset for an awards show host. In addition, he has a decent level of popularity. This would attract decent numbers in key demographics, which is important in choosing a host. He ultimately has the key characteristics that would make a decent host.

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:
