Well, those are some big heels to fill. The Academy Awards show hadn’t begun yet tonight, but viewers were already clamoring for SNL duo Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, who hosted the Golden Globes. William Shatner said what everyone is apparently thinking.

As far as I'm concerned, the #Oscars began and ended when William Shatner asked "Why can't Tina and Amy host everything?"

Shatner got it right. Bring out Tina and Amy.

Just sprinkle a few Sarah Palin-bashing jokes into the mix and you’ll be as good as liberal gold, Seth.
