2016 Oscars to Hire a ‘Well-Known’ Duo as Next Year’s Hosts

by Mike Sampson September 2, 2015 @ 7:44 AM
Last years Oscars host Neil Patrick Harris said almost immediately after the broadcast that he “doubted” he would ever do it again, explaining, “I don’t know that my family nor my soul could take it.” Which, of course, meant that the search for a replacement was on almost immediately. But, if you’re looking for just one person, you may be barking up the wrong tree. This year’s Oscars producers say “there will be multiple hosts for sure.”

Not only did the inimitable Amy Poehler (briefly) consider an offer to host, but so too did Chris Rock apparently mull over taking the chair for a time.

by Matt Singer June 16, 2015 @ 8:08 AM
It’s been at least five years since the last great Pixar film (or more, depending on your feelings about Toy Story 3).
