This is great, if true. The Oscars have yet to confirm it, but Variety has it from multiple sources that Regina Hall, Amy Schumer, and Wanda Sykes will host the Academy Awards next month. Each will emcee a different hour of the ceremony, and while no one has seen most of the nominated Best Picture nominees, they’ll likely tune in to see what each star has to offer. Via Variety:

Amy Schumer, Regina Hall and Wanda Sykes are finalizing details to host this year’s Academy Awards, multiple sources told Variety.

The three comic forces appear to be the only emcees in the mix for the March awards show, despite several scenarios that telecast creatives have been weighing. Producer Will Packer has been in meetings for weeks trying to find the right recipe for Hollywood’s biggest night.

Scenarios that “Girls Trip” filmmaker Packer had been toying with included a three-act structure, which would showcase a different pair of emcees every hour. A laundry list of top talent has met with Packer over the past weeks, including “Mad Men” star Jon Hamm who exited talks over the weekend, according to two additional sources.

ABC, which airs the annual show, declined to comment on the matter. The hosts will be formally announced on “Good Morning America” on Tuesday.
