Whoopi Goldberg to Host Oscars

LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Whoopi Goldberg will host this year's Oscar ceremony, her fourth time as master of ceremonies of Hollywood's biggest bash.

Goldberg, whose last turn as host was for the 1998 ceremony, will run the proceedings on March 24 when the awards return to Hollywood for the first Oscar show from the new Kodak Theatre, the movie academy said Monday.

``It'll be the first broadcast done from Oscar's new home, and I love a housewarming,'' Goldberg said.

An Oscar winner for ``Ghost,'' Goldberg also was nominated for ``The Color Purple.''

Steve Martin was host for last year's Academy Awards. Seven-time host Billy Crystal has been the most popular master of ceremonies in recent years.

Oscar nominations will be announced on Feb. 12.
