Hey man, would you watch the Academy Awards if they were hosted by Tommy Chong? He’s NOT a contender; this is just a “pipe dream” of mine. But imagine the fun! Tommy just seems like a hoot of a choice that would bring in viewers out of love and curiosity. He was just revealed as the “pineapple” on FOX-TV’s new show, The Masked Singer. He’s current, he’s entertaining as heck, and maybe the kick that the show needs.
Kevin Hart was set to emcee but bailed out. The show takes place on Sunday, February 24th. If there’s no official MC, various celebrities will do some banter while handing out the statues. The Oscars went hostless about 30 years ago. Let’s just say that show definitely had its moments! If there is a host, key changes to this year’s ceremony mean less work for the him/her with a bigger role for the presenters, according to an insider. Should I start a petition…man?
