Home Movies Oscars News: Amy Schumer, Wanda Sykes, Regina Hall Will Be Hosting Trio...

Variety had a great scoop earlier this afternoon. Amy Schumer, Wanda Sykes, and Regina Hall will be the three hosts for the Oscars on March 27th.

The big announcement will come tomorrow morning on “Good Morning America.”

Variety says the Academy talked to men, notably Jon Hamm, but he dropped out.

These three women are eclectic choices. But they’re all capable, and at this point the idea is to get the job done without embarrassment. This trio should be able to do that and more. Schumer and Sykes are very funny. Hall is an accomplished actress who is doing comedy lately in a movie we saw via Sundance called “Honk for Jesus, Save Your Soul!”

Why the Academy didn’t go for some of the names bandied about on Twitter is clear: they weren’t available. A lot of people wanted Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez from the Hulu series, “Only Murders in the Building.” Another group campaigned for Tom Holland and Zendaya from “Spider Man.”

But what we want or desire on social media isn’t necessarily practical. The Oscars are a month late this year. Actors are busy and have schedules. So you can’t just call people up and say Come on over. A lot of work is involved.

So we look forward to Schumer, Sykes, and Hall (sounds like a law firm) to get us through the three hours on March 27th. There should be five great musical performances, and plenty of entertainment for everyone.
