Amy Schumer isn’t going to sidestep current issues when hosting the Oscars in 2022 – the year we almost defeated a pandemic and saw a war break out immediately after.

In the midst of Russia’s invasion of his nation, the “Life & Beth” star is even attempting to arrange for Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to virtually attend the event.

“I actually pitched, I wanted to find a way to have Zelensky satellite in or make a tape or something just because there are so many eyes on the Oscars,” Schumer remarked while promoting the 94th Academy Awards on “The Drew Barrymore Show.”

“I think it’s a great opportunity to at least comment on a couple of things. I have some jokes that kind of highlight the sort of current condition. I mean, there are so many awful things happening that it seems hard to focus on which one,” Schumer continued.

Schumer, as usual, asserts that she is not scared to confront difficult issues.

“I am not afraid to go there, but it’s not me producing the Oscars,” she said.

“I think there is definitely pressure in one way to be like, ‘This is a vacation, let people forget, we just want to have this night,'” Schumer said. “But it is, like, well, we have so many eyes and ears on this show.”

After three years without an emcee, this year’s Academy Awards will be hosted by Amy Schumer, Regina Hall, and Wanda Sykes. Will Packer, an American producer, stated that each female host offers something special to the event.

The Oscars will be held on March 27 at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. The event will begin at 8 p.m. ET and will be broadcast live on ABC.

The event’s organisers have promised that the broadcast will be engaging and cinematic.

“The show will flow, not unlike a movie, in that there will be different themes and a different feel and different energy throughout the night,” Will Packer told IndieWire.

“It will not feel or look or sound like one show for three hours. It’s taking you through the course of this cinematic journey” he added.
