Oscars 2022 Will Have a Host For First Time Since 2018

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Academy has actually already reached out to their first choice.

After a long streak of going without a host, the 2022 Oscars will once again have an emcee.

For the first time since 2018, the awards show will be led by a yet-to-be-named host. The telecast is set to air on March 27 on ABC.

Craig Erwich, president of Hulu Originals and ABC Entertainment, announced the news on Tuesday.

For 2019’s show, Kevin Hart was slated to host, but stepped down within days of being tapped after controversy emerged over his past homophobic tweets. 

In 2020 and 2021, the show stuck with the host-less format, save for a few jabs from serial Hollywood roaster Ricky Gervais.

“Spider-Man: No Way Home” star Tom Holland recently revealed that he was interested in the hosting gig.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the Academy did reach out to Holland.

“If they ask me to, I would, and it would be very fun,” he told the Hollywood Reporter. “I would really enjoy it.”

Though the “Spider-Man” actor appears to be a fan favorite, others are taking to Twitter to offer their suggestions.
