Well friends, here we go again: awards season. Not only that, this is the second awards season that has occurred amid a dramatic rise in the Covid-19 case that leaves red carpets and large galas invisible if not completely dangerous. The Grammys have already been postponed from their original date of January 31st. The AFI Awards lunch was also pushed back. The list goes on and on. Anything that hasn't been turned off or off yet? The Oscars. The show is scheduled for March 27 - and this time, it will host.
Not that there has never been a host before. In previous years, everyone from Billy Crystal to Ellen DeGeneres embraced the show. But no - one has been involved in the show since Jimmy Kimmel's run ended in 2022. (Part of the reason the show was hosted without a host was a complete controversy for Kevin Hart that I do not. enter here.) This year, however, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is once again about to get someone to fill that position. The thing is, they do not know who.
Following the news on Tuesday that the show would be hosted, there has been speculation about who could be, and who it is. ought to bhi. Spider-Man: No way home star Tom Holland threw his hat in the ring. Page Six states that someone had the good idea to give their sons to Pete Davidson. But while everyone waits for an official announcement, the internet does what it does best, and throws out their own competitors.
One of the obvious popular with crowds was Elmo. The little red man from Sesame Street has been burning up the internet recently because of a rant that went on - unusual for him Sesame Street but not for Elmo - about how silly it is to give a pet rocker a cookie. (Yes, this really happened. He screamed at his fellow Zoe, "Rocco is not live! ” in a surreal time that could have all but proved that 2022 is the year of the greatest fear.) On the surface, this might be a good idea. Who does not want the night to end with a Sesame Street character screaming “Why Drive My Car spinning? tell Elmo! ”? But then you remember that there are plenty of petulant children in Hollywood, and by hosting an awards show it would get old very quickly.
other thought that was what turned out to be not only Dutch hospitality, but also Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire - his Spider-Men counterpart. Looks like it's fun! But also, why are we overlooking Zendaya? Just saying '. As this week went on, other names joined the fray. Willem Defoe! Eric Anndra! The Academy even he posted the question to Twitter, asking people to offer hypothetical hosting options. (Favorite personal suggestion: Saturday Night Live throwing member Bowen Yang.)
