People Have Strong Feelings About The Oscar’s Host-Less Opening

The 91st Academy Awards may not have had a host lined up this year, but the ceremony did start with a bang. The original members of Queen and Adam Lambert kicked off the night with a live performance followed by opening remarks from our favorite trio of comedic ladies, Amy Poehler, Tina Fey, and Maya Rudolph. Needless to say, Twitter had their opinions about the unexpected beginning.

This year’s Oscars ceremony may have been hostless, but “presenters” Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Maya Rudolph kicked off the evening with some hilarious commentary.

The Saturday Night Live alums poked fun at a number of Oscars gaffes including the lack of host.

“We are not your hosts, but we’re going to stand here a little too long so that the people who get USA Today tomorrow will think that we hosted,” said Fey.

Maya Rudolph also remarked on the academy’s removal of the popular movie category before taking a perfectly timed jab at Trump.

“So just a quick update for everybody in case you’re confused. There is no host tonight, there won’t be a popular movie category,” said Rudolph before adding, “And Mexico is not paying for the wall.”

Needless to say, Twitter had some thoughts about the introduction.

And many fans wondered why the trio hadn’t been named the official hosts.


We can only hope they decided to host next year!
