It’s never too soon to start planning for the future! From Louis C.K. to Aziz Ansari, here are FIVE hilarious and talented celebs who should host the 2017 Oscars.
Which one of these amazing celebrities should be crowned the host with the most for the 2017 Academy Awards?
1.) Louis C.K. Proves He’s Worthy During 2016 Show
One name that keeps coming up while talking about the Oscars is comedian Louis C.K. While presenting an award he hilariously reminded everyone in the audience how unimportant winning an Oscar was in the long run, especially when indie and documentary filmmakers are still living paycheck to paycheck and trying to keep their heads above water.
Louis would be a great addition to the long list of previous Oscar hosts, and his deadpan delivery and realist sense of humor would certainly have everyone laughing throughout the night!
2.) Yvette Nicole Brown Could Put Her Fangirl To Use
One actress I’ve had my eye on is Yvette Nicole Brown, formerly of Community, who has become a staple when it comes to anything entertainment related on social media (especially The Walking Dead). Despite being in the industry, Yvette still has that “fangirl” sense about her that most viewers can relate to. Squealing over Leonardo DiCaprio? Check. Asking Meryl Streep for a selfie? Check. Gushing over her favorite on-screen couple? Check.
3.) Chris Pratt Would Be A Charmingly Hilarious Host
He’s a huge, huge, huge movie star now, but Chris Pratt hasn’t forgotten where he came from. He became famous for his role on Parks and Recreation, especially for his physical comedy and improving. He’s pretty well-known in Hollywood and would surely make for an entertaining host, especially if it involves him taking a step back to his Andy Dwyer days!
Plus, I’ll be honest, he would be really, really nice to stare a for three hours — especially if his abs make a cameo!
4.) Aziz Ansari Could Up His Game At The Oscars
Oh, and speaking of Parks and Recreation… how does Aziz Ansari, one of the most hilarious comedians in the game, get overlooked time and time again when it comes to hosting gigs? Is he just secretly turning them down behind our backs, or is he seriously being sidelined for bigger names?
Whatever the reason is, it needs to come to a stop — and SOON. Aziz would totally be a great host, especially because he so rarely holds back when it comes to his comedy. No one would be safe from his punchlines!
5.) Anna Kendrick Could Be An Oscar Delight
She can sing, she can dance, and she can make people laugh. Those are just three reasons that Anna Kendrick would make a wonderful Oscars host, along with the fact that she is just perfection in small human form. Although she opted out of tweeting through the 2016 awards ceremony, she’s been through the awards circuit herself, has rubbed shoulders with almost all of the actors in attendance, and knows a thing or two about working a stage.
