Actor and comedian Pete Davidson could become the Oscars 2022 host, adding himself to a list of other Saturday Night Live stars to have performed the duties.
Based on recent reports, Pete’s people are in talks with producers as the annual awards show is aiming for a “reset.”
A few weeks ago, Pete’s recent hosting gig also made a strong case for the SNL star due to his ability to reach a particular demographic.
Oscars 2022 host could be Davidson
A report from Page Six indicates that the 28-year-old Pete Davidson is being eyed to host the 2022 Academy Awards. The report suggests that “His people are talking to producers,” per an exclusive source.
The Academy is reportedly looking to draw in a younger audience, and Davidson seems to have that drawing power.
“He gets a demographic that is hard to get,” the source told Page Six about Davidson. “He is in a good space, his career is doing well and he is on the rise. He is a sex symbol, unlikely, but he is big with a certain generation.”
Davidson has risen to fame over the years as a quirky standup comedian and member of Saturday Night Live. He’s also been part of a critically-acclaimed movie, King of Staten Island, and has dated several high-profile celebs.
That includes Arianna Grande, Kate Beckinsale, and now, Kim Kardashian, which often keeps him in the headlines.Sign up for our newsletter!
