Re: The Host of the 91st Academy Awards Is....

The Original BJ wrote It's getting the PGA nod for sure. The WGA has a way more populist contingent than the Academy's writers' branch, so it's probably in there too. SAG Ensemble isn't out of the question either (Roma isn't their style, and Green Book and A Star is Born have tiny enough casts to b...

Re: The Host of the 91st Academy Awards Is....

Greg wrote Which leads to the question, just how many people will be watching the show, regardless of who is hosting, if, as seems likely, A Star Is Born will be the only Best Picture nominee to have made more than $50 million in ticket sales? Black Panther is a Golden Globe nominee for Best Drama....

Re: The Host of the 91st Academy Awards Is....

I actually have a modicum of sympathy for him. He may very well have been evolving as a person over the past ten years. Lord knows, he wouldn’t be alone. And as a black entertainer crossing over as successfully and as young as he did... truly impressive. These producers threw him out there without a...

MaxWilder wrote But people with their calendars set to 2018 are very aware of Kevin Hart. He's already hosted and presented at award shows, less than tastefully. A 'background check' wasn't necessary. The Academy gambled that a ratings boost would be worth some bad press in the meantime. This was s...

MaxWilder wrote Tiffany Haddish has often told a story about Kevin Hart helping her out when she was struggling. Maybe she wouldn’t take the gig. There’s nuance to everybody. MaxWilder wrote Story? But not Jeffrey Wells. https://www.google.com/amp/s/deadline.com/2007/09/creepiest-email-from-a-blogg...

I fucking love Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Just... everything.

Big Magilla wrote Jeffrey Wells disagrees. He says "Tiffany Haddish doesn’t seem to know movies all that well. Remember how she said she decides what to see by what her friends at the beauty salon tell her? She’s not a Movie Catholic, and the Oscar host has to believe, has to really care."...

An interesting replacement being floated about is Tiffany Haddish.

Should we just cancel the Oscars this year? Like, honestly. These guys are doing a terrible job and who would miss it?

OscarGuy wrote If they want to appeal to younger audiences, then they could get someone like The Rock or even Justin Timberlake. Dwayne Johnson was the first person I thought of when I was thinking about who should host. He's probably the biggest star in the world, he's got good enough comic timing...

Re: The Host of the 91st Academy Awards Is....

One of the biggest challenges of producing this show is they desperately need bigger ratings but they have to do so in a way that won't alienate their existing audience. To be fair, alienating the people who watch the Oscars year after year is pretty much impossible. I'd like to congratulate the pro...

It’s a badly-reviewed Netflix beauty pageant movie with Jennifer Aniston, but last week I saw some billboards around town promoting Dolly Parton for Original Song and I thought, you know what? The Globes are absolutely going to go for that.

Well played.
