Regina Hall, Amy Schumer, and Wanda Sykes will host the 94th Oscars®, show producer Will Packer announced today. This will be the first time hosting the ceremony for each of them. The Oscars will air live on ABC and broadcast outlets worldwide on Sunday, March 27, 2022, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
“This year’s show is all about uniting movie lovers. It’s apropos that we’ve lined up three of the most dynamic, hilarious women with very different comedic styles,” said Packer. “I know the fun Regina, Amy and Wanda will be having will translate to our audience as well. Expect the unexpected!”
Added Hall, Schumer, and Sykes, “We want people to get ready to have a good time. It’s been a while.”
“We’re invigorated by Will’s vision for this year’s Oscars: celebrating movie lovers alongside moviemakers and spotlighting fan favorites that prove how cinema can unite us all,” said Academy president David Rubin and Academy CEO Dawn Hudson. “Hosting this star-studded party are three powerful, funny women inviting us to laugh and cheer for the year’s best and brightest in film.”
Said Craig Erwich, president, Hulu Originals and ABC Entertainment, “Imagine having one of the funniest women in comedy today hosting the Oscars… Now, multiply that by three. Regina, Amy, and Wanda are comedy powerhouses who will make history as the first female trio to host the biggest night in entertainment, and we’re thrilled to have them at the helm to deliver an incredible show full of unforgettable moments and laughter.”
