The 38-year-old star is no stranger to hosting award ceremonies having previously presented the BRIT Awards in 2009, 2011 and 2012, the Tony Awards in 2016 and most recently the Grammys this February and now he has admitted he would "love a crack" at taking control of proceedings at the Academy Awards.

Speaking on the red carpet before the Vanity Fair Oscars Party on Sunday evening (26.02.17), 'The Late Late Show' star - who attended the bash with his wife Julia - said: "I don't know if I'd ever get asked if I'm honest, I'd love a crack at it but I don't know if it would ever come my way!"

However, if James was to take on the Oscars - which was this year hosted by fellow talk show host Jimmy Kimmel - next year it would have to be the only awards show he fronts, as he previously claimed it would be "greedy" to host more than one award show in one year.

Asked if he would consider presenting the Tonys in June after having already hosted the Grammys, he said: "I don't know if I could do it this year, really. To host the Grammys and the Tonys in one year is perhaps a little greedy.

"Don't get me get wrong, though, hosting that show is a dream come true to me. I'd cry my eyes out if I thought that I could never host it again. But if that were the case, I'd be thrilled that I got to host it last year.

"I've never been so aware of how much I'm enjoying something at the time that I'm doing it than hosting the Tonys.

"But I also don't know that the audience wants the same person to host all these shows. I'm very conscious of not overstaying my welcome."
