Can They Do The Oscars Too, Please? Stanley Tucci & Patricia Clarkson To Host Gotham Awards

While "Easy A" was a show for the film's star Emma Stone, we would be remiss in talking about the film if we didn't mention that Stanley Tucci and Patricia Clarkson are equally hilarious and charming as her parents in the film. So we can't really be too surprised then that the duo have been tapped to host 20th Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards on November 29.

While "Easy A" was a show for the film's star Emma Stone, we would be remiss in talking about the film if we didn't mention that Stanley Tucci and Patricia Clarkson are equally hilarious and charming as her parents in the film. So we can't really be too surprised then that the duo have been tapped to host 20th Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards on November 29.

We wish the Oscar producers could get this clever with their selections but considering they recently offered Hugh Jackman the hosting role (which he turned down) it looks like they are going for another high profile bore to helm the show. Hell, even the Golden Globes recognize that Ricky Gervais slayed last year and were smart enough to hire him on again. Conan O'Brien seems to be a natural choice for the Academy particularly if they want to get buzz and ratings and we'd kill for the Masturbating Bear to present Best Picture. But considering how terribly David Letterman went over we would guess it will be a while before they can be convinced a late night host should get the gig.

Anyway, we're digressing a bit. The awards will be handed out on November 29th and a number of celebs will be on hand to hand out statues including Julianne Moore, Anne Hathaway, Jesse Eisenberg, Barbara Kopple, Anthony Mackie, Leighton Meester, Rosie Perez, Sam Rockwell, John Turturro and Michelle Williams.
