Whoopi Goldberg Offers to Host Oscars — But Admits She’s a ‘Problematic’ Pick

Whoopi Goldberg is speaking out against the idea that the Academy Awards forgo a host at the 2019 ceremony — and is offering to do the job herself.

Sources told Variety that skipping a host is one of the plans that the Academy is considering after Kevin Hart dropped out of hosting the Oscars. Hart initially did not apologize for his resurfaced homophobic tweets but did so as he stepped down.

“A bunch of huge celebs, something SNL style, and buzzy people” could replace the post that Hart was going to fill, sources told the publication.

Meanwhile, a source familiar with the situations tells PEOPLE, “All options are open, including going without a host or some variation of multiple hosts. There has been a lot of interest from within the industry offering up names of potential hosts. Nothing has been decided yet.”
