The Oscars have been hostless since 2018, when Jimmy Kimmel did the honours, and have not been jointly hosted since James Franco and Anne Hathaway teamed up in 2011.

This will be the first time ever that the Oscars have been hosted by three women. The last time the Academy Awards had three hosts was in 1987, when the duties were shared by Chevy Chase, Goldie Hawn and Paul Hogan.
