Oscarcast producer Don Mischer recently admitted to the L.A. Times that Betty White's name is being tossed about as potential ceremony host. And now there's a Facebook campaign to drum up support for her to get the job too. A similar cyber-drive worked to get her the gig of hosting "Saturday Night Live" in May, which just earned her an Emmy nomination.

But Betty isn't interested in hosting the Academy Awards. "I can tell you now I won’t be doing the Oscars, Emmys or any other awards," she says. "I was terrified out of my skin doing 'SNL,' so the Oscars is not going to happen. It's too much."
