Will these two be making another go at hosting the Oscars?
Two people will handle emcee duties at the 2016 Academy Awards, one of the newly announced producers of the show tells EW. And it sounds like they already know who the duo will be…
“There will be multiple hosts for sure – there will be two,” says David Hill, the former Fox executive who will produce the show with Reginald Hudlin, a producer of Django Unchained and a former entertainment president at BET.
When asked why he thought two hosts would be better, Hill hesitated. “Two is better than one,” he said, before joking. “Just imagine, you’re in there. One of your hosts drops dead from cardiac arrest. What do you do? Second host goes on! And you keep going. … Note to self. Check out their heart rates.”
So who could it be? Options include Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, whose Key & Peele sketch show is ending its run on Comedy Central on an ultra high-note. But at the same time, they aren’t like, Hollywood A lister or anything. My mind (obvi) jumped back to Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, who ended their three-year contract with the Golden Globes last December and were a total hit.
Either way, anything’s better than James Franco and Anne Hathaway, AM I RIGHT? Who do you think this hosting tag team will be? I’m hoping Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer, who are writing a movie together…
