Tina Fey says she will never host the Academy Awards

By Christopher Rosa,

Despite rave reviews for hosting this year's Golden Globe Awards with fellow funny girl Amy Poehler, Tina Fey says she will never host the Academy Awards.

"I just feel like that gig is so hard,” she said Tuesday to The Huffington Post. “Especially for, like, a woman — the amount of months that would be spent trying on dresses alone … no way.”

Fey is so adamant about not taking the stage as the Oscars host, she said there is a “one in a million chance” of her doing it.

“I wish I could tell you there was,” she then said wistfully.

Tina Fey's refusal to host the Academy Awards comes just after this year's ringleader Seth MacFarlane vowed to never do the job again.

However, Entertainment Weekly conducted a poll and asked readers who they thought should be the next host. Neil Patrick Harris came in first place with 32 percent of the votes, followed by Amy Poehler and/or Tina Fey with 28 percent.

Here's hoping for an NPH Oscars in 2014!
