VOTE: Now That Kevin Hart’s Out, Who Should Host The 2019 Oscars?

Back to the drawing board!

As we reported, Kevin Hart backed out of hosting the 2019 Oscars on Thursday due to his anti-gay jokes from long ago resurfacing, causing an internet uproar, and putting him in the awkward — and clearly very traumatizing — spot to say he was sorry.

Now that Hart’s out, the Academy is back on the search for a host who is both funny and without a history of questionable homophobia. Someone engaging and controversial — but not too controversial! Network TV controversial. So, like… Ellen DeGeneres.

Thankfully, social media is bustling with suggestions. Twitter has already nominated the likes of Billy Eichner, Tiffany Haddish, Patton Oswalt, Kristen Bell, Wanda Sykes, and Dwayne “The Rock� Johnson. (We’d also like to throw Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele in the ring as co-hosts!)

Other contenders, like Busy Philipps and Ricky Gervais, were not subtle about letting the Academy know that they, too, were avail.

Which of these stars do YOU think should host the 2019 Oscars? Or do you think NO ONE should host it? That’s fine, too! Cast your votes (below)!
