LOS ANGELES - If the Oscars need a host, Billy Crystal is ready to talk. That was the message that came across over the weekend when Crystal, who hosted the show eight times between 1990 and 2004, answered a fan who asked an Academy Awards question after a 20th anniversary screening of City Slickers in Santa Monica, Calif. Crystal, from the stage of the Aero Theatre, admitted that he got "itchy" after last year's cameo on the Oscars and that he'd be ready to talk about a return to the global stage of the gala.

Seven years ago, Philadelphia was among five U.S. cities seeking to qualify to host the 2016 Summer Olympic Games, but it failed to make it to the medal round. The U.S. Olympic Committee wants to know if the city is ready to get back in the game. Letters went out this week to gauge interest for 2024 among the nation's 25 largest cities - including Philadelphia - and 10 others, the USOC said. Mark McDonald, Mayor Nutter's spokesman, was noncommittal Wednesday about whether the city would apply, but he spoke enthusiastically about what an honor it would be to host the Games.

SO THAT HAPPENED. The 87th annual Academy Awards had its moments, but too many of them were uh-huh moments. Host Neil Patrick Harris onstage in his tighty whities, a la "Birdman. " Anna Kendrick and Philly's Kevin Hart presenting the award for animated short because, well, they're animated. And short. Harris' following the Oscar win of "Whiplash" star J.K. Simmons with, "He won Oscar . . . ," set to the tune of the jingle for Simmons' Farmers Insurance ads. Yep, Oscar, the Everest of hosting gigs, has left yet another promising host stranded short of the summit.

ON AIR, OFF AIR, Josh Innes loves to talk. About his love of radio. Life in Philly. And the '80s sitcom "Coach," which he owns on DVD. Either way, it's the same guy. "Me on the radio is me here right now, and that's what I take pride in," Innes, 28, said yesterday afternoon, sitting at a bar table at Kildare's Irish Pub in Manayunk. "Obviously, when you're on the radio, you kind of ham it up a little bit. I have to say it in a way to get people responding, but every opinion I have on the radio is an opinion of mine," he said.

While Meryl Levitz was standing gamely with the politicians and her fellow hospitality-industry executives at a news conference in the Mayor's Reception Room in City Hall on Thursday, her staff was already busy digging out old playbooks. "I hope they're already working," she said. The conference detailed a massive but welcome challenge for Philadelphia and its leadership: to be fully prepared for July 2016, when the Democrats hold their national convention here. Many of the strategies, and many of the individuals who created and employed those strategies, will be a direct repeat from 2000, when the Republican National Convention was in Philadelphia.

A sold-out Wells Fargo Center will be occupied Saturday mostly by Villanova fans who presumably would like nothing better than to see their team gain a measure of revenge for the 20-point defeat Georgetown handed to the then-No. 4 Wildcats on Jan. 19 at the Verizon Center. Villanova coach Jay Wright, however, isn't into the revenge-as-motivation deal. He would rather see the now-No. 7 Wildcats (20-2 overall, 7-2 Big East) put together a complete game at both ends of the court when they take on the 24th-ranked Hoyas (15-7, 7-4)
