Craig Zadan and Neil Meron have sent a Tweet: they are leaving their roles as producers of the Oscars telecast. The pair did the show for three years. It’s a thankless job, as they learned. The producers of “Chicago” gave the Oscars a lot of musical moments that won’t be forgotten, including the return of Shirley Bassey for the James Bond anniversary.
So who should the next producer be? Remember, before Zadan and Meron it was supposed to be Brett Ratner. Maybe let him try it now. And host? I say Jimmy Kimmel. Just let him do it, already. Whoever does it has to have nerves of steel, that’s for sure.
