Take 2: Who Will Host the 91st Academy Awards?

Ellen DeGeneres is the preferred daytime host of lots of people across the world and she is also the betting favorite to sponsor the 91st Academy Awards. The Oscars hosting gig has developed to a spot reserved for the most universally and industry-wide valued personalities, of whom DeGeneres is one.
Kevin Hart was initially selected as this year’s host but resigned just days after after some old tweets of his resurfaced into a chorus of outrage.
Ellen last hosted in 2014 when 12 Years a Slave won Best Picture. That broadcast was the highest-viewed show since Billy Crystal hosted in 1999, when American Beauty was the major winner. The DeGeneres-hosted Oscars drew 43.74 million viewers in 2014 compared to last year’s Jimmy Kimmel-hosted series which was the lowest-rated Oscars ever — 26.5 million viewers.
Will Kimmel Get Another Shot?
Jimmy Kimmel was set into a really hard place annually as the host of the Oscars as he had to undertake the #MeToo movement in a room full of Hollywood celebrities and executives. The host of Jimmy Kimmel Live, who is gaining a reputation for his stage to tackle the problems of the day with a side of humor, was generally applauded for his attempts to walk the tightrope of serious and funny in an ever intense political and social climate.
Nobody will be surprised to see him return for the next year, but it’d be breaking with precedent since the show has not seen someone host in forthcoming years because ol‘ loyal, Billy Crystal, from 1989 to 1992.
WHo I WOuld Like to Watch There are two duos on the plank that I would love to see given the opportunity to host the show. Jordan Peele and Keegan Michael Key (+800) are two of the funniest guys in the business and flourish in a sketch environment. They can modify the theme on a dime and would be excellent running a ribbon throughout the series whilst hitting comedic spots throughout.
Speaking of duos who thrive in a sketch surroundings, you are able to bet on the duo of Kate McKinnon and Kristin Wiig at +1800. McKinnon awakened and took Wiig’s function as Ms. Everything at SNL after Wiig moved on. Seeing them work together in the live environment using their exclusive brands of humor would make me observe an event I might otherwise pass on.
