    No host was a great way to go last year and I’d rather they didn’t have a host this year either so they’d prove last year’s great ceremony wasn’t a fluke. Instead of a Queen performance, they can open the ceremony with a 10-12 minute performance of Original Song nominees, which would silence the “I don’t want to see songs performed, what is this the Grammys?” crowd. Then the first award of the night would be for the Original Song for a better transformation, it would look good imo. If there has to be a host then pay whatever’s necessary and give her the freedom she needs and get Phoebe Waller-Bridge to host.

    I think Elton John would be a better opening, honestly, especially if Taron Egerton gets the nomination (and I think he will). Putting all the song nominees in the first 10-12 minutes would be a risk. Has there been complaints about that? Honestly, to me it feels like a way to entertain the audience.

    Oscars 2020: I stan Joaquin Phoenix, Willem Dafoe, Alan Silvestri, and Dean Deblois.

    Emmys 2020: I stan Logan Lerman, Olivia Colman, and David Harbour.

    Tom Hanks and Amy Adams stan in general.

    I feel like I would want to see one of these 5 host:
    Jimmy Kimmel
    Ellen
    Eddie Murphy
    John Mullaney
    Billy Crystal

    Saying that, I’d prefer no host again tbh.

    I like it too. But there are people asking for that category’s removal altogether, not just the performances.

    No host. But if it has to be someone… let’s just please make it a woman, okay?

    (Oh, and if Gemini Man hadn’t been such a flop with no buzz, it would be hilarious if the hosts were Will Smith and Will Smith. I can totally imagine him coming out as alternating versions of himself with a couple prerecorded bits of the two versions of him interacting. Could still work with Lupita I guess? Would just be a lot of fun to see them do something interesting with that host role.)

    With the imminent backlash Gervais is likely to receive we are either gonna get a very PC choice or no host will be the way to go.

    It’s time to post what is probably going to be my annual request:

    Graham Norton or bust.

    “No user starts this shady” - someone culturally relevant.

    Also got banned because...reasons? So, I guess ciao.

    If there *must* be a host, don’t go with a comedian. The producers always choose a stand-up “artist,” but stand-up is a broken form and nobody is good at it, let alone funny at it.
