The Academy Awards will have a presenter for the first time since 2018 and will be held again at the Dolby Theater. The same ABC, the event’s broadcaster, confirmed the news, and now on the web, the bets have begun on who will be the host of the 2022 Oscars. The most popular hypothesis, even from the newspapers, is Tom Holland.
Although other events have been postponed due to the rise in COVID-19 cases, ABC said the Oscars would be held smoothly on March 27 in Los Angeles. This year’s ceremony will have a presenter as revealed by ABC Entertainment president Craig Erwich.
In recent years, from 2019 to 2021, the Oscars have had famous guests delivering awards to the winners but no presenter of the evening. However, interest in the event dropped to an all-time low in the US in 2021, reaching just 10.4 million people. It is not clear if this is why we chose to return to include a host for the 2022 edition.
In recent times, Spider-Man actor Tom Holland has shown his interest in conducting the evening, even with his partner and colleague Zendaya. After the great success of the movie Spider-Man: No Way Home, which could also be competing in different categories, the young performer is among the most popular to get the role.
Previous hosts include host Jimmy Kimmel, comedian Chris Rock and Ellen DeGeneres. The nominations for the Oscars will be announced on February 8, and perhaps on that day, we will also find out who will be the host of the 2022 Oscars.
Who Could Lead The Oscars?
In 2019 Kevin Hart was supposed to lead the Oscars but decided to give up after some of his old tweets with homophobic slurs resurfaced online. The Academy reportedly wanted him to return as a presenter if he “expressed an interest in returning”. However, at the time, the actor did not retrace his steps, and that edition continued without a conductor. Could the comedian be considered for the 94th edition held this year? His name is undoubtedly one of those that have appeared online these days.
Some sources revealed that the Academy has already decided and that the person concerned has already been contacted. Other names that have leaked online are Dwayne Johnson and Chris Rock. It is not clear whether the two are competing as presenters of the individual categories and consequently have the role of delivering the prize to the winner or as conductors of the event.
Indeed at the moment, the name that is making its way among all and which is at the top on all platforms is that of Tom Holland.
And who would you like to see on that stage? Now we have to wait for the revelation of the Academy, which will soon tell us who will present the Oscars 2022, which will be held on March 27.
