The host

    Cedric the Entertainer is set to host the 73rd annual event and promises to bring some humor as the show celebrates how TV has helped get us through the pandemic, minus any zingers.

      “It’s not bad if you’re the news for a couple of days, but you don’t want to be the guy that ruins the night or someone’s moment,” he said in a recent interview. “At the same time, you’ve got to be yourself.”
