Here’s everything we can expect from this year’s Oscars

oscars 2022

We wait with bated breath as Hollywood’s night of night’s braces us with its golden touch once again. The profound glamour, the awkward presentation moments (Adele Dazeem anyone?). The Oscars as such, is never without some level of freshly minted political controversy. As far as the last few years have gone, there hasn’t been much in the way of bluffs on the hosting front. With the exception of the axing of Kevin Hart as host from the 2019 awards after some questionable tweets, the show has been host-controversy free and has remained without one. It seems that 2022 will once again be the year the Oscars host will be revived for our viewing pleasure.

What's planned for the 2022 Oscars?

According to Deadline, the president of Hulu & ABC Entertainment has revealed during the TCA executive session that the broadcast will once again move ahead this time with a host. While the exec stayed mum on the details of who will host he playfully joked that given the ever changing COVID-19 circumstances it might come down to the wire with exec producer Will Packer taking the reign's.

Who's in line to host the show?

Sources have revealed the Academy have already been working their way through their Hollywood rolodex of big names to take on the hefty gig. Names like Dwayne Johnson are believed to be at the top of the list. Other alum including former host Chris Rock have also been approached as an option to kick the party off.  Thanks to the current pandemic situation, securing someone is proving to be difficult. 

What about the presenters?

Little has yet been revealed at who will take the stage, although we imagine there will be similar protocols in place as seen over the last two years during the pandemic. There is even the possibility of numerous hosts being flouted as an option to break up the broadcast. One thing is for sure, we can expect a siege of malapropisms’, and perhaps an adequately socially distanced gag or two. 

When will the 2022 Oscars take place?

The 94th Oscar’s is set for Sunday, March 27th it will be televised live on free to air.
