Jerry Seinfeld: I turned down offer to host the Oscars

jerry-seinfeld Comedian Jerry Seinfeld told The Hollywood Reporter that he was offered to host the Oscars but refused because he wouldn’t want to be part of the “most controlled possible environment”. He said: “I was at a point where I was saying, ‘This is the year I’m either going to host the Oscars or I’m going to try and make a show on the Internet.’ I can’t give you the beats on what happened there, but something happened, politically, and I said, ‘Ok, then I’m gonna do the Internet thing’. And now that door has kind of closed behind me.”

He also added: “Nobody wants the Oscars to be good. Nobody really cares. I don’t care. I’m going to watch it regardless. It’s just something we need to do. It’s like a husband and wife occasionally are going to have a fight. That’s what the Oscars are – something we need to do from time to time.”
