Internet Provides Suggestions for Oscar Host

ImagesEven though the Academy has yet to officially announce a new producer for the 2012 Oscar telecast, the Internet is filled with suggestions for a new host. Old chestnuts like Billy Crystal have been making the rounds for years, though now with a renewed fervor, but now new names that range from "South Park" creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone to Conan O'Brien to Jonah Hill have popped up on Twitter. Even before this week's controversy, @MuppetOscars had been tweeting about letting Miss Piggy and Kermit serve as emcee for Hollywood's most glamorous night. There's no doubt it would make for an imminently watchable show. Dancing sequence from Gonzo's chickens, maybe?
