OSCARS - BILLY CRYSTAL
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Billy Crystal knew he wanted to come back to host the Oscars when he heard Melissa Leo swear while accepting her Oscar last year and the hosts, James Franco and Anne Hathaway, never made fun of it. He tells Entertainment Weekly that "it's fun to be out there when moments like that happen." However, having done the show eight times, he knows how hard it is to make stars laugh who are anxious about winning and haven't eaten all day. He jokes that "it's like a bad seder towards the end: we've had plagues, we've have pestilence and we still haven't eaten."
