For the first time in history, three women will be hosting the Oscar Awards. Amy Schumer, Regina Hall and Wanda Sykes will be keeping it light with some jokes on the Oscar stage. 

In 1994, Whoopi Goldberg was the first black woman to host the glitzy Oscar Awards. Other women who have been Oscar hosts include Ellen DeGeneres and Anne Hathaway. 

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight earlier this month, Regina Hall said: “Wanda and Amy are so generous and I think we just really wanna create a really fun and celebratory night of movies and being able to be in person.”

“It’s been a wild couple of years and so for us, we just really wanna have fun and make a great night for the audience,” she added.
