The headline factory went a little funny in the head over Billy Crystal’s attitude towards hosting the Oscars again. He said he’d become “itchy” to host again after a brief appearance on last year’s disastrous telecast. He’s talking about maybe wanting to again – hard to tell if he’s being polite or really wants to do it. Somehow I doubt if they’re going to all the trouble to hire the presumed “young and hip” Brett Ratner to produce, it seems unlikely they will veer off that path and head into more traditional waters with Crystal. More likely, Ben Stiller might be the best choice. Stiller is starring in Ratner’s upcoming Tower Heist. I have my money on Stiller hosting. Will they pair him up with a pretty young thing like last year? If so, my money is on Emma Stone – freshly picked peach also starring in another of Ratner’s upcoming movies.
