What would the Oscars be without the red carpet? With stars like Zendaya, Nicole Kidman and Lupita Nyong’o at the Academy Awards this year, the Oscars 2022 fashion did not disappoint.
The 94th annual Academy Awards will be held at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood, Los Angeles on March 27, 2022. The awards show, which is the second Oscars since the current health crisis, will be hosted by Amy Schumer, Regina Hall and Wanda Sykes. The event marks the first time three women have hosted the Oscars. “I don’t see how we can lose, honestly,” Schumer told USA Today in 2022. “We’ll know we left it all out on the Oscar stage and that we did it. We’re going to show what three women, and two women of color, can do.” Sykes added, “It was just instant chemistry, we all fit well together,” she said.
The Academy Awards, also known as the Oscars, started in 1929 as a dinner at The Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel with around 270 guests, where 15 statuettes were awarded honoring actors, directors and other members of the movie industry. The Oscars statuette is a gold-plated bronze trophy on a black metal base that features an Art Deco-style knight holding a sword while standing on a film reel with five spokes. The five spokes represent the original branches of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, who award the Oscars: actors, writers, directors, producers and technicians. The Oscars were first televised in 1953, which continued to broadcast the award show until 1960 when ABC took over. The highest-rated Oscars was the 70th Academy Awards in 1998 when Titanic, one of the highest-grossing movies of all time, won Best Picture. More than 57.25 million viewers tuned in that year. The lowest-rated Oscars came in 2021 when Nomadland took home the award for Best Picture. Around 10.4 million viewers tuned in.

Who are the Oscars 2022 hosts?
The Oscars 2022 has three hosts: Regina Hall, Amy Schumer and Wanda Sykes. The 94th Academy Awards is the first time since 2018 that there’s been an Oscars host. It’s also the first time the Oscars have had three women host the awards show.
In an interview with USA Today, Schumer, Hall and Sykes opened up about their plans to host the Oscars. “I don’t see how we can lose, honestly,” Schumer said. “We’ll know we left it all out on the Oscar stage and that we did it. We’re going to show what three women, and two women of color, can do.” Sykes added, “There will be different variations. Two of us or just one, even three. We’re going to switch it up.” Sykes also talked about how she, Hall and Schumer fit together as hosts. “It was just instant chemistry, we all fit well together,” she said. Hall also revealed the Oscars advice she received from past host Whoopi Goldberg. “Whoopi said just to have fun because if you’re having fun, then the audience is having fun,” she said.
Sykes and Hall also confirmed that they don’t plan to roast the celebrity guests like past Oscars hosts have. “I am leading with love. It’s going to be a fun night. I know these people, They showered, they got dressed up. They worked hard making these films. I’m not ruining anybody’s night,” Sykes said. Hall added, “Roast is too harsh, but we will have fun. They will be part of the joke, they are not the joke.” She continued, “You want the joke to be something that their best friend would say, but they can still laugh about it.”
