“Disclaimer”: The Oscars are something I have loved since childhood. They can be five hours in length, or I won’t care. That being said… While nothing’s confirmed yet as far as returning to the more traditional format with a host, I’m hoping for a joke-fueled 2022 Oscars ceremony to wash last year’s unfortunate and un-festive ‘celebration of movies’ from my memory. It’s unlikely that the show will be another disappointment. Girls tripProducer Will Packer at the helm, so here’s hoping we can all agree that an uplifting night—no matter how serious or elegiac or ugly-cry-inducing some of the best films might be—is what audiences deserve. It has happened before. I believe it will happen again.
