Will Jeff Bridges win an Emmy for hosting 'Saturday Night Live'?

Jeff Bridges

"Saturday Night Live" has not yet announced that Jeff Bridges will host the show on Dec. 18, but Gold Derby has the scoop. The recent Oscar champ ("Crazy Heart") has a lot coming up to promote. Not only is he back in the lead actor derby with "True Grit," due to unspool in theaters in December, but he also appears in November's "Tron Legacy."

But could Jeff Bridges also win an Emmy? He'll be eligible for his stint on "SNL." Several other stars won for appearances over the past two years — Betty White, Tina Fey and Justin Timberlake.

Our forums moderator Chris "Boomer" Beachum discovered the news about Bridges' upcoming "SNL" host gig and reminds us, "Jeff Bridges has hosted 'SNL' only once before, back in February 1983 with his brother Beau as co-host. At more than 27 years and 10 months, that will make it the longest stretch between hosting appearances. The previous record was held by Sigourney Weaver, who hosted in October 1986 and then in January 2010 (23 years and three months)."

Maybe it's burn out from the political season, where articles predicting what would happen this past week began appearing TWO YEARS ago, but I have to ask: do we need articles on whether an actor will win an award for a performance that is not just unreleased but hasn't even been performed? Isn't it news enough to just report on whether Bridges will host "SNL"?

Bridges is so fine.
I fell for him in Against All Odds. sigh

TRON: Legacy comes out in december, not november.
