Josh Gad

Josh Gad checks all the boxes of a good Oscar host. Funny? Check. Song and dance skills? Check. Fun personality? Check. Beloved by millions? Check.¬†He’s got a distinct everyman quality that Hollywood loves, and Oscar audiences would too.

Aisha Tyler

Aisha Tyler

Many people know Aisha Tyler as just another beautiful actress. That’s just the tip of the iceberg. She’s an ultra-talented comedian with loads of hosting experience, a razor sharp wit and a nose for pop culture. She’s a gamer, she does a voice on Archer, she’s very much a renaissance woman in addition to being a great actress.

Amy Schumer

Amy Schumer

The only downside to Amy Schumer hosting the Oscars is the censors would have a field day. Don’t let the warm, pretty exterior fool you. Schumer is a comedy pitbull with absolutely no boundaries when it comes to content. That kind of hilarious loose cannon might be just what the Oscars need.

Kevin Smith Tusk

Kevin Smith

Love him or hate him, Kevin Smith is a great storyteller. He’s a captivating speaker with a distinct voice who loves movies to no end. Granted, if he hosted the show might go six hours instead of four, but you wouldn’t care because you’d be hanging on his every culturally savvy word.
