OPRAH MIGHT HOST THE OSCARS- IF SHE GETS WHAT SHE WANTS!
Oprah has hatched a plan to host the Oscars and she’s deep in negotiations with the Academy. She figures it would be a great way to drum up viewership for her struggling OWN network if she could have special backstage access for her cameras to capture her Oscar experience. She’d like to film preparations and rehearsals and have behind the scenes footage before and after the show exclusively for OWN. ABC is reluctant, but if Oprah doesn’t get what she wants, it’s likely she won’t host.
