There Will Be TWO 2016 Oscar Hosts…

More Arrivals at The 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards Arrivals  in LA

Will these two be making another go at hosting the Oscars?

Two people will handle emcee duties at the 2016 Academy Awards, one of the newly announced producers of the show tells EW. And it sounds like they already know who the duo will be…

“There will be multiple hosts for sure – there will be two,” says David Hill, the former Fox executive who will produce the show with Reginald Hudlin, a producer of Django Unchained and a former entertainment president at BET.

When asked why he thought two hosts would be better, Hill hesitated. “Two is better than one,” he said, before joking. “Just imagine, you’re in there. One of your hosts drops dead from cardiac arrest. What do you do? Second host goes on! And you keep going. … Note to self. Check out their heart rates.”

So who could it be? Options include Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, whose Key & Peele sketch show is ending its run on Comedy Central on an ultra high-note. But at the same time, they aren’t like, Hollywood A lister or anything. My mind (obvi) jumped back to Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, who ended their three-year contract with the Golden Globes last December and were a total hit.

Either way, anything’s better than James Franco and Anne Hathaway, AM I RIGHT? Who do you think this hosting tag team will be? I’m hoping Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer, who are writing a movie together…

Neil Patrick Harris Read Those Negative Oscar Reviews And Shares His Side

52nd New York Film Festival Opening Night - 'Gone Girl' Premiere

Neil Patrick Harris took on the crazy task of hosting the Oscars this year.  The Oscars aren’t known for being all that “exciting” to begin with, so the odds were already stacked against him.  He tried the best he could and  received mixed reviews.  He talked to the Huffington Post about the experience and shares whether he’d try to tackle it again.

Would he do it again?  “I don’t know that my family nor my soul could take it.  It’s a beast. It was fun to check off the list, but for the amount of time spent and the understandable opinionated response, I don’t know that it’s a delightful balance to do every year or even again.”

What he thought of the negative feedback:   “I didn’t keep up with it obsessively, but it was interesting to see just what people thought landed and didn’t.  It’s so difficult for one who’s simply watching the show to realize just how much time and concession and compromise and explanation has gone into almost every single thing. Every joke. Wording of joke. Placement of joke. Canceling of joke. Embellishment for just one line. And I’m not saying that to defend everything I said as if it was the absolute best choice, but it’s also an award show, and you’re powering through 14 acts filled with 20 plus awards. So my job was to try and keep things as light and specific to this year’s set of films as possible. And if people are critical of that, it’s a big giant platform, so I would assume that they would be.”

What did you think of Neil’s hosting?  I think the writers could’ve given him some better material, but he was far from the worst host (looking at you, James Franco).  Who do you think should try it next year?

Someone Stole Lupita Nyong’o Pearl Oscar Dress!

The 87th Annual Academy Awards in LA

Remember that gorgeous pearl dress that Lupita Nyong’o wore to the 2015 Oscars last weekend? I wasn’t the only one who loved it – apparently someone lurking about the actress’s hotel really liked it, too.  Someone stole Lupita’s white gown, which was made of 6,000 pearls, from her hotel room this week, but thankfully she wasn’t there when it happened.

Lupita was out of her room from 8 a.m. until 9 p.m. on Tuesday night and when she returned, she found her $150,000 gown had been stolen!

According to TMZ, the cops are hoping that cameras inside the London West Hollywood captured the crook on tape.

How would you even sell that?  Nearly everyone who would be dying to get their hands on it would know it’s stolen.  And where could you wear it without being detected?  Maybe some rich socialite wanted it so she could wear it while binge watching Game of Thrones and eating pizza at home?
