As for the 2022 Oscars, there’s no word on the host just yet, but after three Oscar ceremonies without a host, it might be a good idea to see a familiar face. The 94th Academy Awards will take place on March 27 at the Dolby Theater at the Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood and will be televised live on ABC and in more than 200 territories around the world.
