The 2019 host-less Oscars was a complete success, especially after Tina Fey, Amy Poehler and Maya Rudolph took the stage. Thus, the Oscars 2020 host predictions suggest the three Queens of the comedy deserve to become official emcees next year.
The 91st Academy Awards will go down as the first ceremony in 30 years not to have a host. According to online sportsbook news in the US, Kevin Hart was invited to be the host. Yet he had to step down, following a backlash over his previous homophobic jokes. He was not replaced, rather the ceremony went on without a host, and it was a complete success. Even the TV ratings for the host-less Oscars went up for the first time in five years.
For the 2020 Oscar ceremony, it has not yet been confirmed whether or not there will be a host. However, the online sportsbooks in the US do not expect a host-less sequel in 2020. Thus, there is a long list of names, but our Oscars 2020 host predictions opt for the three comedians Tina Fey, May Poehler and Maya Rudolph to be official emcees next year.
Fey, Poehler, Rudolph to rock Oscars opening in 2020
Tina Fey, Amy Poehler and Maya Rudolph had hilarious stint while presenting the best supporting actress at the 2019 Oscars. Lots of fans hope they will come back and be the emcees next year, and forever after that! Fey, Poehler and Rudolph made the audience forget that there was no host for 2019 Oscar ceremony.
The three comedians made fun at the Academy’s tumultuous planning. They reminded viewers that there would be no awards presented during commercial breaks, and no achievements in Popular Film category. Rudolph also delivered a political message, assuring viewers “Mexico’s not paying for the wall”.
Hence, ABC News came out on Twitter stating “The Oscars don’t have a host this year, but we’ll take Tina Fey, Maya Rudolph and Amy Poehler any day”. Perhaps the three Queens of comedy should host next year’s ceremony in 2020. You can bet on that with +200 odds at 22BET Sportsbook.
The Rock was the original choice for 2019
Academy’s original choice to host 2019 Oscar ceremony was Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. The Rock is a great box office performer with a giant social media following. He is the perfect choice for the job. When the Academy invited The Rock, he was completely down to it. Yet, scheduling conflicts with his films ultimately prevented The Rock from signing. Will the Academy go back to him for the next year? According to our Oscars 2020 host predictions that will be very much on the table with +400, if Fey, Poehler and Rudolph cannot make it for any reason.
Kimmel among the favorites but he does not want to return
The bookies offer +650 odds for Jimmy Kimmel to host the Oscars for the third time. Jimmy presided 2017 infamous Oscar ceremony, in which “La La Land” won mistakenly the Best Picture instead of “Moonlight”. In 2018, he came back trying to focus on positive things, while addressing Hollywood harassment and gender inequality. After 2018 Oscars, he announced that he does not want to return to host the show for the third time.
