David Letterman Still Gets Asked to Host the Oscars
David Letterman's 1995 stint as host of the Academy Awards may go down in infamy, but during a very winning visit to The View this morning, Letterman revealed that he turned down the chance for a re-do. "You know, they were nice enough to ask me to [host] it again," he told Barbara Walters. "And I just said, 'Come on, are you drinking?'" Letterman was adamant that he would never return to the scene of the crime: "I did it once, I had my shot, I screwed it up, and almost put an end to the Academy Awards...I sucked. What are you gonna do?"
