In 2022, the Oscars will have its first host since 2018 and they're looking to make it a good one. While no official name has been announced yet, there are a few high-profile figures who are in talks to lead Hollywood's biggest night.

It was revealed only a couple of days ago that the Academy Awards (which are set to air on March 27) would be led by an emcee once again. Hulu Originals & ABC Entertainment President Craig Erwich made the announcement, saying that Oscars executive producer Will Packer had big things in store.

“Will really has his pulse on popular culture and entertainment,” Erwich noted. “I know he has a lot in store and we’ll have more details to share soon.”

One of the many names being floated around is SNL cast member and King of Staten Island star, Pete Davidson. The 28-year-old actor is being eyed by producers, according to a report from Page Six. A source told the publication that the show is trying to attract younger viewers and they're looking for a “reset” with someone like Davidson.

But Davidson isn't the only one the producers could be considering. Other rumors have floated, saying that Spider-Man: No Way Home star Tom Holland is in talks to be the next host.

The British actor had previously expressed his interest in the position during an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, and the publication later learned that the Academy had reached out to him to discuss the idea.

Deadline has reported that there is also a chance the 2022 Oscars will have multiple hosts. A source told the site that producers are looking at having three different hosts, who will each take on a portion of the telecast. Big names like Dwayne Johnson and Chris Rock have been proposed if this is the ultimate format.

The last time the Oscars had a host was in 2018, when late night personality Jimmy Kimmel led the event. This year's ceremony will be broadcast on ABC on Sunday, March 27 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.

We can't wait to see what host they choose.
