The Oscars will find the Master of Ceremony in 2022

The Oscar night will see the Master of Celebrations for the first time since 2018, the ABC channel announced on Tuesday that it will be airing the flagship event of the American Film Awards season, whose audience has only fallen in recent years.

For the 94th edition, held on March 27, the Oscars return to Hollywood and their traditional Dolby Theater.

Last year, the Coronavirus pandemic forced the Academy of Cinema Arts and Sciences to hold a gala evening at a major train station in central Los Angeles with a reduced scale in line with health regulations. Television broadcasts without popular celebrations have garnered nearly ten million viewers, a 56% drop compared to 2020, which already recorded a historically low audience.

Speaking at a panel discussion hosted by the Television Critics Association, ABC Entertainment President Craig Erwich said, “I can confirm that this year will be a strong host for the Oscars.

Mr Erwich did not want to give further details, but declined to say whether comedian Jimmy Kimmel would be repeated at the Masters of Celebrations for the Oscars in 2017 and 2018.

In 2019, comedian Kevin Hart relinquished control of the evening when old tweets that he thought were homosexual resurfaced. He was not replaced and the ceremony was held with a legacy of different presenters without a chief host to orchestrate everything.

The formula was very popular and was picked up by other awards, such as the Emmy Awards, but the last two editions of the Oscars were criticized for their lack of humor and rhythm.
