There could be a internet hosting lack in The usa, but Wanda Sykes has no intention of filling it. Even though appearing as a visitor on a recent episode of Live With Kelly and Ryan, Sykes experienced a crystal clear and concise reaction when requested if she’d emcee the Oscars again: “Oh, hell no.”
“I signify, I shouldn’t say it like that,” Sykes clarified right after building the quip. She went on to explain to Ryan Seacrest and Kelly Ripa that even though emceeing Hollywood’s greatest night with Regina Hall and Amy Schumer was an honor, she does not necessarily have an fascination in executing it once more. “I assume it’s some thing that you want to do, you do it when. And I really don’t know if I would want to do it all over again. It’s a substantial position.”
Sykes did happen to cohost the most remarkable Oscar ceremony in modern history, which could explain why she is not champing at the bit to return to the gig. “It was just like, what is taking place? Couldn’t consider it. Shock,” she stated when Seacrest requested about her response to Will Smith’s notorious slapping of Chris Rock. “So everybody’s just going to sit here? It was like, the demonstrate just saved heading on and I’d glimpse [from] guiding the curtain like, he’s continue to sitting below? What is happening? What is going on? It was insane, it was just weird.” But regardless of the unfortunate incident, Sykes managed that all round, the Oscars ended up “an remarkable night” with “good vibes.”
Probably because of to chaos of this year’s Oscar ceremony, the organizers of the 74th Primetime Emmy Awards are seemingly having a fairly complicated time locating a host themselves. NBC reportedly arrived at out to Rock and Dwayne Johnson, who both declined the gig. Now Deadline experiences that the Emmys may well be considering a host-much less ceremony.
“Right now, Reggie [Hudlin, Emmys producer] and the Performed + Dusted workforce are putting with each other some creative ideas for us, and finding them to…us so that we can commence looking at how we want to do this—with a host or without a host, and who would be the host,” Television set Academy chairman and CEO Frank Scherma informed the outlet. Nonetheless, soon right after the story was released, the Television Academy presented a new assertion to Deadline clarifying Scherma’s reviews. “Television Academy Chairman Frank Scherma in no way intended to imply that a host-much less ceremony is currently being regarded as,” the assertion said.
So will the Emmys have a host or not? It sounds like a host-considerably less ceremony is a previous resort, but potentially however on the table. Sigh. Where’s Bob Hope when you need him?
