Tig Notaro to Host Oscars 2016? Yes Please.

Tig Notaro to Host Oscars 2016? Yes Please.

Now that Sunday’s fanfare has begun to die down, comedian Tig Notaro has started a campaign to be next year’s Oscar host. In a frank blog post, Notaro lists 11 reasons why she should be the award ceremony presenter, including number four: “I’ve been known to perform topless just like Mr. NPH did.”

And number 10: “My relatives back home in Mississippi always say, “Why don’t you host the Oscars! You’d be so good at that!”

We also love number three: “Whenever I tour thru middle America, inevitably 3 people a week tell me I look EXACTLY like award show host favorite Ellen Degeneres.
