Ricky Gervais to Host Oscars?

From IMDb:

British comedian Ricky Gervais is hotly tipped to host next year's Academy Awards.

Gossips claim new Oscars bosses Laurence Mark and Bill Condon were impressed with The Office creator's laugh-raising stint at Sunday's Emmy Awards, and they want to audition him for the Oscars.

A source tells, "The buzz around town is that Ricky should host the Oscars."

Previous Oscars hosts have included Whoopi Goldberg, Steve Martin, Jon Stewart and Billy Crystal.

I know that it's way too early to take these rumors seriously (remember Justin Timberlake?), but this truly excites me.

Well, the movie industry is ripe for a scewering, that's for sure, and he probably could do it. I was still hoping for an Ellen return, but he was one of the very few bright spots during those boring three hours -- which seemed like six. I actually felt sorry for all those people trapped in that theatre.
