Jimmy Fallon says no to Oscars
We already have some anti-news concerning the 2013 Oscars. It seems Jimmy Fallon is not presenting the ceremony. Rumours had been circulating that the comic was the Academy’s first choice to host the awards. Last week Fallon admitted that an offer had been made, but he had turned it down. “No, I’m not going to do the Oscars,” he said. “It’s an honour to be asked, but it’s not my year.”
It looks as if the organisers are trying to find somebody who is youngish, but not so young that he or she frightens the greybeards. At 37, Mr Fallon seemed to meet those criteria nicely.
