This year, the Oscars took place on the 24th of February and the ceremony was hosted by Seth MacFarlane. MacFarlane hosting the event saw it garner the best ratings in the past 3 years and it is rumored that an even more controversial host will take over next year to maintain the favorable ratings. A rumor going around has it that Justin Timberlake might be the host next year.
It is said that Justin Timberlake has been considered as a host for the Academy Awards severally, but he was always thought to be too young or not seasoned enough. Timberlake’s current comeback in the music scene with his album ‘The 20/20 experience’ has further propelled him further into the limelight. So far he is a top contender for the hosting job, with his ‘double threat status’ promising that a lot of spot improvisation and entertainment can be expected if he does get the role.
