The Oscar nominations have been released and the question of who will host the anticipated award show is still up in the air. Although there is still no official host named, The Hollywood Reporter has reported that the show might feature three different hosts across a three-act show.
The Oscars award ceremony was absent of a host for three years, so this opportunity comes as a way to make up for that missing piece of the show. Not only this, but this also gives the chosen hosts less of a burden to bear – hosting just one hour instead of three. This may also prove useful for the program, which has seen slowly declining ratings, especially in young people, throughout the years. By having multiple hosts on the show, the producers might be able to target different demographics.
Past Oscar hosts have included the likes of Neil Patrick Harris in 2015, Chris Rock in 2016, and Jimmy Kimmel in 2017 and 2018. The personalities for this year remain unknown, but Tom Holland, star of the groundbreaking Spider-Man: No Way Home seems to be in the running. The triple host announcement is sure to come soon with ample time before the show.
The 94th Academy Awards will premiere live from Hollywood’s Dolby Theater on March 27 at 5 pm PT/8 pm ET on ABC.
