Oprah Winfrey tipped to host 2012 Oscars

Washington , Mon, 11 Jul 2011 ANI

Washington, July 11 (ANI): She just ended her 25 years talk show in May and now TV mogul Oprah Winfrey is apparently being counted as the top candidate to host the Oscars ceremony next February.


According to Chicago Sunday Times, academy honchos are keen to lift the ratings after last year's ratings dropped 10 pc on the previous years, after being hosted by actress Anne Hathaway and actor James Franco, whose performance was widely lambasted by critics.


The aim was to target a new and younger demographic with attraction of both Hathaway and Franco, however the plans backfired and lead to what was described as "strained and weird."


Hence the apparent keenness to get Winfrey on board and her legion of fans and give the Oscars a much-needed boost, reports Contactmusic.


However, the Academy Awards head honcho has rubbished speculation on this matter.


"The camera loves Oprah. Oprah's a genius. But it's not true, and I don't know where that story even came from," Tom Sherak told Hollywoodreporter. (ANI)
