The 93rd Annual Academy Awards have officially been postponed to April 25, 2021. Everyone is buzzing about who the best host for this year would be. I have four pretty strong choices to throw into the hat. 

I wouldn’t start my list with anyone other than the one and only, Viola Davis. Not only does she give award winning performances, but she should win an extra trophy for every speech she gives, because they are always nothing shy of perfection. Plus, she doesn’t only do serious, she’s got jokes too. Viola is the inspirational and powerful voice we need to guide us through the ceremony. 

You can’t tell me that you didn’t get a smile on your face last award season every time you saw Awkwafina on stage. That girl won the entire year, hands down, even without the Oscar to show for it. But I won’t get into the highway robbery that was her Oscar nomination snub, because we’d be here all day. Awkwafina’s humor, humble confidence and grace are only a few reasons why this Queen needs to run that stage.

Why’d they go with this photo.

If anyone can handle a room of actors, filmmakers and executives post-pandemic (PLEASE!) and election year, Hasan Minhaj can. You all saw how he handled the correspondents dinner. He takes jabs at both sides of the fence equally with wit and intellect. He’s the most knowledgeable host in both entertainment and current events, so why wouldn’t he be on the list? 

Tiffany Haddish. I don’t think I really need to say more than that, but I will. There hasn’t been a more relatable comedian in years. She would get on that stage, tell it exactly like it is, and we would give her a standing ovation the whole time. Tiffany’s humor is honest, sometimes shocking, and her voice is one that needs to be heard. 

We don’t need the same archetype hosting this show, or other shows for that matter, over and over again. We need new voices that have something real to say. What the heck, let’s just have all four of these amazing people host together! That’s the show I want to watch.
