Billy Crystal Won't Host Oscars

7 December 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Television viewers worldwide will be disappointed to learn that Billy Crystal won't be in his regular slot hosting the annual Oscar jamboree because he is too busy. Crystal, 53, has hosted the Academy Awards seven times to great acclaim. He says, "If everything goes according to plan, I'll just be finishing a new movie on 22 March. I can't host the show five days later." Crystal is working on the comedy America's Sweethearts (2001) with Julia Roberts and newlywed Catherine Zeta Jones. Another frequent host, albeit a less popular or successful one, Whoopi Goldberg, has said that she won't do the Oscars again. Crystal remarks, "They need someone associated with the movies. It should be Jim Carrey." Crystal said that if Carrey isn't available to host the 73rd annual Academy Awards' ceremony, TV talkshow hosts Jay Leno or David Letterman would be good emcees. »
