Earlier this week, the Academy asked a hypothetical question on Twitter: “…if you were asked who would you like to host the Oscars, and this is strictly hypothetical, who would it be hypothetically?”
Responses poured in, and while the host for this year’s ceremony remains unclear, a few rumors have been circulating.
Among the names was Pierre Davidson, corn Variety noted on Friday 14 January that the Saturday Night Live star is too closely tied to NBC, a competing ABC network. Instead, some say Only the murders in the building stars Selena Gomez, Steve martin and Martin runs could do the honours. Craig-Eric, Hulu Originals and president of ABC Entertainment, said Variety this week:
“I mean, they’re an iconic trio. They have mass appeal. Everyone loves them. It would be a dream. That said, there’s a lot of amazing talent we’re looking at. We have ongoing conversations with Will and the Academy about this.
Officials have yet to make a decision as of Friday’s press.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences previously revealed the 10 category shortlists for the 94th Academy Awards. Possible candidates include Billie Eilish, Ariana Grande, Beyonce and others. Nominations will be announced on February 8 and the Oscars will take place on Sunday, March 27.
