“Disclaimer: I’ve loved watching the Oscars since I was a kid, and I don’t care if they’re five hours long, I’m all in. That being said… While nothing’s confirmed yet as far as returning to the more traditional format with a host, I’m hoping for a joke-fueled 2022 Oscars ceremony to wash last year’s unfortunate and un-festive ‘celebration of movies’ from my memory. I don’t see the show being a repeat bummer with Girls Trip producer Will Packer at the helm, so here’s hoping we can all agree that an uplifting night—no matter how serious or elegiac or ugly-cry-inducing some of the best films might be—is what audiences deserve. It’s been done before, and I have faith it can be done again.”
