Academy Awards will have a host

The Academy Awards will follow a different script in 2022.

Organizers plan to enlist a host for this year’s Oscars ceremony for the first time since 2018, ABC Entertainment President Craig Erwich said Tuesday during a press tour put on by the Television Critics Association.

Erwich has not said when the host will be announced.

The Oscars, which honor the past year’s achievements in film, are scheduled for March 27 at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.

Late-night star Jimmy Kimmel hosted the Oscars in 2017 and 2018.
