    I’m hoping they get Kevin Spacey to host now that he’s said he’d like to host.

    Kevin Hart is the obvious choice, and I imagine if he agrees to it, that’s who it will be.

    Pair him with Melissa McCarthy.

    That sounds awesome.  He was the best part of the Emmys.

    Who is Kevin Hart?  (Others will be asking the same thing)  He’s not a big name …is he in movies?

    Kevin Spacey doesn’t do comedy.  He does impersonations.

    Whoopi would be interesting.  If she’s up for it.  If someone wants an example of what makes a good host, just watch this.  Her entrance and monologue are very well paced.  She plays to the entire audience, not to a few celebrities in the front rows…which in turn leads to a fuller reception by the entire theater.  (There are no dead space/pauses thus in the telecast.)  She was also able to get laughs from things that happened that night, unscripted (Roberto!).  When a joke doesn’t go over perfectly, she can jump back quickly to get a laugh.  That’s good comedy and good improv. And the costumes were hilarious.

    Kevin Hart has already has had two big movies this year, led by Ride Along. He had a hit comedy concert film last year. He is at the moment almost the biggest draw in American movies. Think Like a Man 2 likely is one of the biggest films of the summer. He is very funny, very sharp.

    Come on, “who is Kevin Hart?”  And it is not like the hosts need to be A-listers.  They got a man primarily known for voice acting last year.

    Kevin Spacey doesn’t do comedy.  He does impersonations.

    Hugh Jackman, James Franco and Anne Hathaway are not known for doing comedy either.  Did Amy Poehler and Tina Fey not get promoted to Golden Globe hosts after a successful presenting bit?

    Hart is a stand up comedian and film actor. I guess he does impressions, but that is a tiny part of his resume.

    He’d be a huge ratings booster.

    Does Hart have crossover appeal outside of the urban market?  If he does, than he could be a viable choice.  He’d also be the youngest host thus far.  MacFarlane had a huge hit movie in Ted, but that was definitely risky (I’m not sure the producing team will go for another such risk…hence this year’s Ellen).  I think Chris Rock was a much more widely known person when he was chosen.  And he was offensive and alienated white audiences.

    Amy Poehler and Tina Fey had the SNL resume, comedic shows on television, plus they succeeded in presenting. They were widely known and had the goods, as writers and comedians.

    Hugh Jackman, James Franco, and Anne Hathaway were not the most successful hosts, as we know.  The latter two being the worst host failure at the Oscars since the 1980s.  And I’m not a fan of bringing the Tonys vibe to the Oscars.  When has Kevin Spacey ever showed potential to host?  He doesn’t do standup, he’s not a writer, he’s not a singer.  I don’t see that as a very good choice.  The only extended talking I’ve seen has been his impersonations at AFI tributes.

    Hugh Jackman was a hugely successful host, as far as I remember.

    Kevin Hart’s ‘Ride Along’ has made $150 million at the box office this year (the highest domestic earner of 2014). So I’d say, yeah, he has crossover appeal.

    Spacey has a gift, and that gift is transforming himself into whatever he needs to be. If he needs to be evil, he can be evil. If he needs to be apathetic, he can be apathetic. He can easily transform himself into a fantastic host. And if you think he’s not funny then you have not seen Horrible Bosses. And his singing was the best part of the otherwise lackluster Beyond the Sea.

    Spacey used to do stand up.

    Jackman was one of the best recent hosts.

    The Lego Movie has far surpassed Ride Along with over $200 mil.
