Ellen DeGeneres (SF80s) announced this morning via Twitter that she’ll be hosting the Oscars next year. This is the comedian/talk show host’s second time MC’ing the awards…
[I’m a little late but nonetheless intrigued by the widely revered comedian’s second foray into Oscar hosting. It always seemed disastrous when overly sensitive institutions picked iconoclastic satirists (e.g. Chris Rock or Seth McFarlane) to rough them up a bit — on censored television no less! DeGeneres seems like a better wit-fit considering that actors aren’t good with roughplay. But what do I know? I don’t even have a television.]
[Dana Gould had a very brief run in San Francisco in the late-eighties and for that I’m allowed to admire and proffer the prolific comedian. He’s a standard for creativity, ruminates over the things he loves and attacks it sooo hard, sooo direct, yet, with scrutiny and grace]
