Oscars 2022 Will Have a Host for the First Time in Years

For the last three years, the Academy Awards have been without a celebrity host.

The Oscars went hostless beginning in 2019. That year, the big show was supposed to be hosted by Kevin Hart but he stepped down when some past controversial tweets came to light. ABC never named a replacement host, opting for lots of celeb presenters to keep the show going.
