Hollywood, California – Sometimes, it pays to mess up. Especially in Hollywood. In front of thousands of Hollywood celebrities and millions of television viewers.
Less than 24 hours after the 86th Oscar Awards were handed out in glittering, snow-flaky ceremonies at The Dolby Theater in Hollywood, the board of governors of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences announced that while it has received thousands of emails asking that Ellen DeGeneres be again named as the host of next year’s Oscars, it has made an irrevocable decision to name John Travolta as host of the 87th Oscars.
The board of governors was reportedly impressed by Travolta’s hilarious unscripted spiel when he introduced Idina Menzel as “Adele Dazeem.” Menzel performed the Oscar-nominated song, “Let It Go,” from the Disney animated film, “Frozen.” The song went on to win the Oscar for best song.
“We’re always looking for talented hosts who are funny, can do impromptu monologues and acts, and make the four-hour awards ceremony anything but boring,” said Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs. “Our governing board members thought that having a host who will mispronounce and mess up with the names of nominees, winners and presenters would be quite a show stealer,” she added.
So, Oscars fans, gird your loins and brace for the funniest monologues you will ever hear on Oscar night. For example:
“Welcome to the 87th Ocsars. I am very honored to be in the company of Hollywood greats like Mereen Strips, Martini Scoreski, Jennifer Warlence, Nidsey Porter and Steven Borgspill. My name is Von Tratolva, and I’m your host for this evening.”
