The comedian, 55, will emcee the event, held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, for the fifth time. “Once again, they’ve made me an offer I can’t refuse. But this is the very last time I’m doing this, which could make for a fun evening,” he said in a statement ahead of the show.
“As soon as NBC called and said, ‘Do you want to do it?’ I thought, ‘Well, that’s Christmas ruined because I’ve got to work,'” he told The Hollywood Reporter ahead of the show, adding that he actually writes his own jokes. “I start writing immediately. Before I decide to do it, I have to go, ‘Have I got anything? What’s happened?’ … I write jokes and they’re considered and I make sure they’re bulletproof. Nowadays, you’ve got to make sure they’re bulletproof in 10 years’ time, with people going through saying, ‘He said this once, 10 years [ago].’ Kevin Hart [lost] his job [as Oscars host] for 10-year-old tweets that he said he was sorry about and deleted at the time. So there’s more pressure on making [the jokes bulletproof]. It’s the world [watching]. This isn’t me in a comedy club.”
As for the nominations, the television category looks a bit different. ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox and The CW were all snubbed as not one network television show or star of a network television show were nominated in the 55 categories. Instead, Chernobyl, The Crown and Unbelievable — all Netflix originals — are leading the TV noms with four nods each.
In the film categories, Netflix’s Marriage Story leads with six nominees; Netflix’s The Irishman and Quentin Tarantino‘s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood tie for second place with five apiece, and The Two Popes and Joker each earned four nominations.
