Betty White To Host Oscars Thanks To Facebook?

Betty White may have Facebook to thank again.

Over the weekend, the 88-year-old former Golden Girls star brought in Saturday Night Live‘s best ratings all season long. The campaign to get her on the show all started with Facebook!

Now, a new Facebook group has popped up to get Betty to host the 2011 Oscars!

If Betty‘s just half as funny as she was on SNL, it’d be a success!

Help Betty become host of the Oscars at Facebook.com!

    umm, no. I like Betty White very much; love the Golden Girls, I watch it almost every day. But , no to the Oscars.

  • whatever

    she needs to do dancing with the stars! LOL

    I hate to bring up the obvious but that’s almost a year from now. Better be a strong back up plan. If I was that age, I would definitely put it on my tentative “to-do” list. No doubt she would be fabulous but….

    ..i’m glad this old lady is getting more press than any old person who hasn’t died. but sadly she’s a fad, and this will all fade when liking her is no longer the cool thing to do. LOL

    This is weird. I commented on another story on here and said she should join DWTS when she turns 89, and today, there’s a story saying the producers of DTWS are eyeing her!

    @InFamouslyCool-She’s been around for over 50 years on TV, and she hasn’t gone away yet. She’s not a fad. Her fame won’t end until she dies.

  • I n F a m o u s l y C o o l..

    @eyeh8twilight: what are you talking about?!? she just started getting all this press because of The Proposal. once they started with those little skits before the movie came out her buzz started and its been building ever since. the lady can barely walk straight. c’mon, she’s a nice funny old lady but keep it real, her fame right now is a fad. it’s cool to like her at this moment. she’s more fcuking popular than any other female actress right now.. you think that’s because of her acting ability or comedic skills?!?

    c’mon, you can like her and still keep it real.

    @I n F a m o u s l y C o o l..:

    She can act and has TALENT, something you lack, So YOU keep it real.

    I love Betty, but she shouldn’t host the Oscars.

  • Shawna

    @I n F a m o u s l y C o o l..: How old are you? You sound like a moronic 16 year old. Betty has been famous for decades! Go find a dictionary, look up the meaning of the word fad.

  • Ali

    No. No Oscars hosting. It would much too strenuous and to no real point, actually. She certainly should do another SNL before the end of the year, if she is willing.

  • ii

    I love Betty White she seems like such a nice little old lady and funny too

  • http://yahoo.com Tere

    LOVE HER!!! She is one talented lady. What most people in Hollywood today lack. I would watch the Oscars just to see what she would do. I normally watch. GO BETTY WHITE!!!!

  • rossy40

    If she wants too… I might just put up with 3 hours just to see Betty liven things up. It’s so BORING otherwise.

  • Ginger

    That is such a great idea!!! I love Bette White since Golden Girls… It will be so great to have her on Dancing With the Stars too… she’ll be cute and funny…

  • Fiona

    no! go away old lady!!
