The Betty White SNL Facebook campaign was so successful, with such entertaining results, that fans have now launched a Facebook petition to have the Golden Girls star host the next Oscars. We say hell yeah!

Betty White on Saturday Night Live was one of the most fabulously fun shows SNL has had in years. NBC can thank Facebookers for the enormous ratings the show garnered from having Betty White take the stage. Facebook fans launched a massive campaign to get their Golden Girl on the show and SNL finally had no choice but to give in.

Now those same Facebook fanatics have launched a new campaign to land Betty White a gig hosting the Academy Awards. The Facebook page “Getting Betty White to Host the Academy Awards” has already garnered more than 6,000 fans since Sunday night.

We are totally on board with this brilliant idea. Betty White was awesome on Saturday Night Live. Not only did she prove she’s still got the comic timing that made her famous, she also showed that no matter how nervous she might have been, she has no trouble handling the stress of live TV.
