Tina Fey: "No way" I'm hosting Oscars

Tina Fey is echoing the very same words Seth MacFarlane had when asked if he would ever host a future Oscars ceremony: "No way."

The former "30 Rock" star attracted rave reviews when she co-hosted the Golden Globes with Amy Poehler back in January, leading to eventual comparisons with Seth MacFarlane, who hosted the Academy Awards on Sunday and wasn't as highly praised.

Following his lukewarm reception, the "Family Guy" creator declared he would never host the Oscars again and predicted thatFey and Poehlerwould take over the job next year, but Fey says that's not happening.

"I just feel like that gig is so hard," Fey told The Huffington Post, "Especially for, like, a woman -- the amount of months that would be spent trying on dresses way."

Not even a one-in-a-million chance?

"I wish I could tell you there was," Fey declared.

So much for MacFarlene's theory, for now.

Fey will next star in the upcoming comedy, "Admission," in theaters March 22.
