Despite the fact that Tina Fey received rave reviews from her stint as emcee of this year's Golden Globe Awards, the 30 Rock star revealed to The Huffington Post that she has no interest in taking on hosting duties at next year's Academy Awards.

"I just feel like that gig is so hard," commented Fey. "Especially for, like, a woman -- the amount of months that would be spent trying on dresses alone ... no way."

The idea that the 'Admission' star be featured as host of next year's awards show was even suggested during the opening number of this year's telecast. In a hilarious bit, William Shatner, who returned from the future as the iconic Captain Kirk, lamented to Seth MacFarlane, "Why can't they get Tina and Amy to host?". When asked about the reference on Sunday's show Fey replied, "It's an honor to be Shatnered."

Yesterday, MacFarlane also closed the door on the idea of hosting the Oscars next year, tweeting "No way. Lotta fun to have done it though."

Tina Fey recently ended her long run as creator and star of NBC's 30 Rock. She will next be seen on the big screen opposite Paul Rudd in the new comedy Admission, opening on March 22.
