Oscar 2022 to have a host after four years

For illustrative purpose only.

The 94th Academy Awards, which will be held on March 27 at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, will mark the return of Tinseltown’s most prestigious prize-giving event.

Last year’s unconventional edition, which was hosted without a host at a Los Angeles train station, drew just over 10 million viewers, a 56 per cent drop from 2020, which was already a record low.

Craig Erwich, president of ABC Entertainment and Hulu Originals, said a virtual panel discussion held by the Television Critics Association, “You heard it here first, I can confirm that this year’s Oscars will feature a host.”

Erwich wouldn’t say whether Jimmy Kimmel, the host of ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! and the last two hosts of the Academy Awards in 2017 and 2018, will return.
“It might be me,” he joked.

After homophobic tweets he posted some years ago resurfaced, comedian Kevin Hart withdrew from hosting the Academy Awards in 2019.
While that year’s hostless style was praised and even imitated by other award shows like the Emmys, future Oscar presentations were criticised for lacking focus and comedy.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences also revealed on Tuesday that veteran director Glenn Weiss will direct the Academy Awards for the seventh time.
The programme, which will be produced by Will Packer and has been postponed for the second year in a row, has a few details that have been confirmed.

The postponement was announced months before the Omicron variation led many Hollywood shows to cancel in-person events this winter, ostensibly to avoid clashing with the Winter Olympics and the Super Bowl in Los Angeles.
