If you are looking for ratings, an appearance by Justin Timberlake is sure to give you a nice little boost. The singer has spent a great deal of the last two weeks making television appearances, first as host of “Saturday Night Live.” Then he spent a week making appearances on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.” He ended it all off with a televised special on the CW to celebrate the release of his album, “The 20/20 Experience.” Now, reports are swirling that Oscars organizers want Timberlake to host next year’s award show.
“Getting Justin to host would now be a huge coup for the Oscars,” a source said. “He’d been considered before, but they always thought he was too young and not seasoned enough. Now, he’s the frontrunner for the job — after showing he knows how to sing, dance host, and improvise on the spot.”
However, a Timberlake source said the reports are “premature” since the Oscars have yet to choose their producers for next year’s show.
