Why Jerry Seinfeld (probably) can't host next year's Oscars

Posted on

If I were Jerry Seinfeld, I’d definitely plan on attending the Academy Awards next year, but not as a host — as many have speculated over the past three days since his standout appearance as a presenter at this year’s Oscars. Nope, the stand-up may very well be stepping back into the Kodak theater as an Oscar nominee for Best Animated Feature for his upcoming Dreamworks film Bee Movie. As these two hysterical teaser trailers demonstrate, it just took the former sitcom mega-star a while to, well, get animated.

And, yes, that really is Steven Spielberg.
