Billy Crystal Says He’s Hosting the Oscars for the Ninth Time
Crystal tweeted the news with his usual humor on Thursday afternoon, saying:
“Am doing the Oscars so the young woman in the pharmacy will stop asking my name when I pick up my prescriptions. Looking forward to the show.”
There’s been no official announcement yet from either his reps or those from the Oscars, but assuming we’re not being Punked with another Andy-Rooney-college-roommate-type scenario, this will be Crystal’s ninth time emceeing the show.
