Jimmy Fallon is said to be front-runner to be the host of next years Academy Awards Ceremony, according to news first broken by the Los Angeles Times.
The American funny man, who hosts Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on NBC, is said to be frontrunner for the job of hosting the prestigious event, which will be produced by Saturday Night Live creator and producer Lorne Michaels.
Michaels and Fallon have worked together before, with Fallon kick starting his career as a contributor on the long-running comedy show back in the late nineties. Lorne also acts as a producer on Fallon's late night chat show.
Whilst this may be great news for fans of Fallon, who may now be looking forward to a slow jam featuring US President Barrack Obama or members of The Roots acting as his house band at the ceremony, it isn't great news for ABC, the network who broadcast the Oscars ceremony.
Abc, a Disney-owned company, are said to be less than pleased with the prospect of one of their chief rivals hosting the night - with Fallon's show running in direct competition with their own Jimmy Kimmel Live!
Unfortunately for Abc though, the job of choosing a host for the event falls not to them, but to Hawk Koch, the head of the Academy.
