The Oscars return to ABC this March 27, once again celebrating a year of film in which audiences have thankfully, for the most part, had the opportunity to return to the cinema. Variety reports that unlike the past few years, the Academy & telecast network ABC want the show to actually have a host this year. We chalk that up to last year’s somnambulistic, host-less ceremony which saw viewership dip to half the numbers of the year before.
Of course, the fact that nobody had been to a movie theater in a year may have also had something to do with it.
