Now that Seth MacFarlane has ruled out an Academy Awards repeat, the Oscar folks are hard at work to find an emcee for the 2014 event. However, Tina Fey is also not interested.
The 30 Rock babe, who earned rave reviews for her Golden Globes co-hosting gig with Amy Poehler, was actually mentioned by William Shatner during a segment on Sundays Oscars as a preferred option to MacFarlane.
But Tinas not going there. She explained, It”s an honor to be “Shatnered. [But] I just feel like that gig is so hard. Especially for, like, a woman — the amount of months that would be spent trying on dresses alone . . . No way.”
Instead, Fey will focus on the new Muppets movie, a new Steve Carell flick called Mail Order Groom, and developing a new sitcom for the NBC network.
