It is not yet clear who is line for the hosting gig, but Jimmy Kimmel was the last person to host the Oscars back in 2018, for a second year in a row.

Spider-Man star Tom Holland has expressed interest in doing the honors, which is being considered by the Academy. 

‘If they ask me to, I would, and it would be very fun,” he said in December. 

Craig Erwich was speaking during ABC’s portion of the Television Critics Association virtual press tour, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

It was also announced that Glenn Weiss will direct the Oscars telecast, marking his seventh consecutive time doing so. 

The Oscars were handed out by celebrity presenters but had no host in 2019, 2020 and 2021. 

Ratings for the telecast have fallen in recent years, dropping to a record low of 10.4 million people in the United States in 2021. Viewership of other awards shows also has declined. 

ABC said in a statement that the 2022 Oscars will take place again at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.

Last year, the awards moved to the historic Union Station train station in downtown Los Angeles with a small crowd of nominees and guests to protect against COVID.

Nominations for the Oscars will be announced on Feb. 8.
