Tina Fey is taking herself out of the running.

Despite her highly praised turn cohosting the Golden Globe Awards this year with pal Amy Poehler, the funnylady has no plans to emcee the 2014 Oscars despite William Shatner's shout-out during the opening sketch of Sunday's ceremony.

Of course, viewers of Hollywood's Biggest Night will remember the Star Trek star visiting host Seth MacFarlane "from the future" to explain why the Family Guy guru's stint fared so badly relative to past Oscar hosts and begging to know, "Why couldn't they get Tina and Amy to host?"

Now in an interview with the Huffington Post, the 42-year-old Fey said that while "it's an honor to be 'Shatnered,'" she has no plans to take the TV legend up on his suggestion and reteam with the Parks and Recreation star for the Academy Awards.

"I just feel like that gig is so hard," she told the site. "Especially for, like, a woman—the amount of months that would be spent trying on dresses alone…no way."

All humor aside, when asked whether that answer was definitive and there was even the slightest chance, the SNL alum pretty much quashed the idea.

"I wish I could tell you there was," she added.

With her critically acclaimed TV comedy 30 Rock now in syndication glory, Fey is concentrating her sights these days on features including Admission, an Ivy League university-set comedy costarring Paul Rudd unspooling on March 22 and the highly anticipated sequel The Muppets…Again!, which just started lensing in London.

She also plans to join forces again with her Date Night hubby Steve Carell for the flick Mail Order Groom, principal photography for which gets underway this summer.
