“Saturday Night Live” poked fun at the Academy Awards’ seemingly unending search for a host after comedian Kevin Hart stepped down after facing backlash for old homophobic jokes.
In the sketch, celebrities audition for the chance to become host.
“Who will risk everything for the chance to gain nothing?” the voiceover asks.
Chris Hemsworth (Matt Damon), comedian Hannah Gadsby (Aidy Bryant), Michael Strahan (Kenan Thompson), Ellen DeGeneres (Kate McKinnon) and more all give their best shot at becoming Oscars host.
“I’ll host the Oscars, sure,” DeGeneres (McKinnon) says. “I haven’t done anything controversial in my life, except for being gay. But people like that now, except for the guy that was supposed to host.”
