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?
