Should Betty White Host the Academy Awards?

by at . Comments

Thanks to Betty White, the May 8 edition of Saturday Night Live posted the show's highest ratings in 18 months.

That hilarious hosting gig came about as the result of a passionate group of White supporters on Facebook, who created a group that pressured NBC to consider the actress.

Now, fans of White are at it again: the Facebook page "Getting Betty White to Host the Academy Awards” has amassed over 6,000 followers since launching Sunday night.

Not shabby support for an 88-year old former sitcom star. But will it enough to land her the job?

Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin served as co-hosts of last year's ceremony. Though each made us laugh a bunch of times, let's be honest: Oscar fashion has become a hotter topic than anything related to the ceremony itself.

Choosing White as next year's MC would go a long way toward changing that.

Do you think this is a good idea? Should Betty White host the Academy Awards?
