The awards producer, Will Packer, has been in meetings for weeks to find the right recipe for Hollywood’s biggest night. According to Variety, the screenplays “Girls Trip” filmmaker Packer starred in featured a three-act structure, in which a different pair of emcees would perform every hour.
A laundry list of top talent has met with Packer in recent weeks, including ‘Mad Men’ star Jon Hamm who left talks this weekend, sources told Variety. A formal announcement regarding the hosts will be made on Good Morning America on Tuesday (US Pacific Standard Time). Amy Schumer posted an Instagram slideshow of some of her biggest career highlights, with the ominous caption, “Big fun news comin.” (sic)’, on Sunday.
Packer, who has been entrusted with bringing the excitement back into the festivities to boost viewership, has found his best lineup in Sykes, Hall and Schumer. Packer has selected an all-female team with broad appeal and comedic chops.
