The drama surrounding the Oscars ceremony is only getting weirder.
After Kevin Hart got called out about all of his un-deleted homophobic tweets, refused to apologize, apologized hours later, then stepped down as host of the 2019 Academy Awards, people started to think.
Who would be able to represent the masses? Who would bring a lightness to the show, make a political statement, and all the while look good?
The answer, like every other problem we had in 2018, was Gritty.
Who should host the Oscars:— The Funyun (@itsthefunyun) December 8, 2018
1) Jeff "thank u, jeff" Goldblum
2) Lin Manuel-Miranda
I'm honestly a little perplexed at the desire to see the host of the #Oscars be someone counter-cultural*: this is not a job that will ever allow for the subversion hoped for.— Myles McNutt (@Memles) December 7, 2018
* Except Gritty, I think Gritty could change the whole game.
It’s funny that we joke about other potential Oscar hosts like any of them could defeat Gritty.— Kibblesmith ☃️ (@kibblesmith) December 7, 2018
So far, there's no word on who will take up the emcee job at the awards ceremony, but predictions are that the Academy will have a hard time finding an A-list host for the event. We'll keep you updated.
