Billy Crystal: 'Might Be Fun to Host the Oscars Again'

By Lauren Cafarell,

Billy Crystal wouldn't mind hosting the Oscars another time.

The eight-time Academy Awards host said that he was moved by the warm reception he received at last month's ceremony and that "it might be fun" to host the show again, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

“I think the show needs to change,” he added, USA Today reports. “There’s too many awards and it has to sort of freshen itself up, and if I can be a part of that, that would be great.”

The hosts of this year's awards, Anne Hathaway and James Franco, were considered by many critics to have been bad hosts, even though they received advice from Crystal before the show.

"Look like you really want to be there," said Crystal, "and hope that something happens you can capitalize on."

Four-time Oscar host Whoopi Goldberg said that she would love to return as a host, but only if she could host the show with Crystal.
