The Academy Awards show seems to be scrambling for a host after Kevin Hart was rejected for homophobic comments in the past. The academy is considering all options even going host less.
“They’re freaking out,” said a top comedy agent, speaking on the condition of anonymity. There were no contingency plans in place by the Academy or broadcaster ABC, according to another insider. The show’s producers are back to square one.
Late night hosts would be the obvious choice (think Jimmy Kimmel, Jon Stewart and David Letterman). But the Academy is now said to be gun shy about going with someone anyone who might be too edgy, noted an industry source.
Then again, going too safe could be fatal for the show’s record-low ratings — the telecast was watched by 25.6 million people in March, a 19 percent drop from the previous year.

Another option is instead of having one high-profile host having many big star types that share the role. That would be an experience. Perhaps they could include Robert De Niro and Kathy Griffin and see how that turns out for them. Maybe even include Samantha Bee and Joy Behar just for kicks.
The problem with the Oscars is no matter who the Oscars pick Hollywood is a vile and disgusting cesspool. Pat Sajak of Wheel of Fortune fame had a fantastic answer on Twitter.
“Here is a quick fix for the Academy Awards show;expand it to two nights . On the first night give out the awards, and celebrate the history and wonder of movies. On the second night hold your political rally.”

And therein lies the answer. Nobody watches these the Academy awards or any of the awards shows anymore because they have become an extension of the resistance. Nobody at least fewer people watch the NFL because they became social justice warriors. And nobody is going to watch the Miss America contest because they did away with the swimsuit and evening gown competition it is just a (liberal) personality contest.
Liberals freaking ruin everything they touch.
