Oprah Winfrey - Oscars Boss Dismisses Oprah As Host

Oscars boss Tom Sherak has dismissed reports suggesting Oprah Winfrey will host the 2012 Academy Awards.
Online rumours posted on Friday (08Jul11) suggested Winfrey was in talks to take on the big awards show, but Sherak, the president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, insists he hasn't even chosen a producer for the telecast yet.
He tells The Hollywood Reporter, "It's not true, and I don't know where that story even came from.
"You have to remember how it works. First, I have to hire a producer, and then the producer comes to the Academy with suggestions for the host. So how could we have a host without a producer?"
The 84th annual Academy Awards will take place in February (12).
