Also, who will? Should Kimmel come back, or should we mix it up? The presenters with the most buzz were Rudolph and Haddish, and many people are saying they’d be great host. The academy already invited Haddish to announce the nominees. And y’all know I’d be fine with Haddish hosting. Any other ideas?March 5, 2018 at 9:17 am #1202507542
I want Tiffany Haddish to host so bad.March 5, 2018 at 9:17 am #1202507544
Ricky GervaisMarch 5, 2018 at 9:22 am #1202507548
That would make it the best Oscars ever.March 5, 2018 at 9:25 am #1202507551
Kumail Nangiani. No to Ricky Gervais cannot stand himMarch 5, 2018 at 9:29 am #1202507557
They should steal John Mulaney and Nick Kroll from the Indie SpiritsMarch 5, 2018 at 9:30 am #1202507558
Kimmel acted like he’d rather have had a root canal last night. Never invite him to host again.
Oprah. She’s always my top host choice for the Oscars.March 5, 2018 at 9:41 am #1202507564
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler – just the right amount of sass and class.March 5, 2018 at 9:51 am #1202507570
I liked Maya Rudolph but I definitely wouldn’t pair her up with Haddish, who can barely talk. I’d say Rudolph could do it alone or with Kristen Wiig.March 5, 2018 at 10:07 am #1202507580
My top 10 choices:
3)Tina and Amy
10)Jane LynchMarch 5, 2018 at 10:08 am #1202507581

I think last night proved you don’t even need a host.
I’m not sure what they cut, but I assume some because once they started to go over the time, it seemed like you didn’t see Jimmy Kimmel anymore. Why go to all that work, when some of it will have to be cut for time anyway?
You could have some A-lister or legend open the show and present the first award, or have some clip montage open it, or even begin with a musical number involving the first presenter.
The host(s) is typically who makes these things run long and other than having an opening monologue, none of it that I’ve seen in the past few years is even worth it (and I’m sick of the gags like surprising people in that movie theater. It seems like everyone has to do their own version of Ellen’s selfie now, and it does nothing but waste time).March 5, 2018 at 10:22 am #1202507603
I wanted them this year, but I’ll settle for next year: Keegan Michael Key and Jordan Peele should co-host.March 5, 2018 at 10:34 am #1202507623
But realistically, last night was Kumail’s audition tape, and he absolutely nailed it.
