Without a host for the past three years, the Oscars are making up for lost time with a comedic trio aimed at giving viewers some fun. “We want everyone to be ready to have a good time. It’s been a while,” Hall, Schumer and Sykes said in a joint statement.
The gig marks a pivotal moment in Oscar history as it will be the first time three women have presided over the ceremony. Before the drought of the last three years, Jimmy Kimmel be the last to hold the coveted position.
But is bringing servers back into the mix the right thing to do for this long-debated format? Over the years, the Oscars have lost steam with viewers as fewer and fewer fan-favorite films match nominations and with less reason to watch, ratings continue to drop. Maybe these funny ladies can turn it around?
And take a look at the newly introduced fan-voted 0f 2021 Favorite Movie and Funniest Movie Moments ever. Can this new element bring viewers to the Dolby Theater in Hollywood when March 27 begins? Only time will tell for sure.
