Year 2022 will finally break the trend of the formerly host-less Academy Awards. The Oscars, which honor the past year’s achievements in film, are scheduled for March 27 and will air on ABC. Craig Erwich, president, Hulu Originals & ABC Entertainment, announced on Tuesday during a Television Critics Association executive session that Oscars will indeed have a host for the 94th ceremony, but did not say who the network has in mind for the job. The last host of the Oscars was Jimmy Kimmel, in 2017 and 2018. Kevin Hart was announced as the 2019 host, but withdrew amid backlash over his past homophobic (gay) tweets. “I do not want to be a distraction on a night that should be celebrated by so many amazing talented artists,” Hart tweeted at the time. “I sincerely apologize to the LGBTQ community for my insensitive words from my past.” The show did not have a host that year. THR reported that Spider-Man’s Tom Holland expressed interest in hosting the awards show, and the Academy did reach out to him to “explore that possibility.” “What kind of fucking idiot wouldn’t host the Oscars?” said Holland on the likely opportunity. Tom Holland told the Hollywood Reporter “of course I would host the f***ing Oscars!”. The Oscars will also return to the Dolby Theater, a venue that has previously hosted twenty shows since 2002, after taking place at Los Angeles’s Union Station last year. The Oscar nominations will be announced on Feb. 8.
