"Our intention is to laugh!" Oscar hosts Regina Hall and Wanda Sykes plan to make the 94th Oscars a celebration, filled with good humor, good intentions and plenty of laughs.

HOLLYWOOD, LOS ANGELES -- This year's Oscars will be hosted by Regina Hall, Amy Schumer and Wanda Sykes.

The comedic trio will be the first to host the Academy Awards since Jimmy Kimmel emceed the 2018 ceremony. The Oscars went without hosts in 2019, 2020 and 2021.

We had a chance to catch up with Hall and Sykes, who said they plan on making the 94th Oscars a celebration, filled with good humor, good intentions and plenty of laughs.

"It's going to be funny. We have some, you know, some hard jokes that's coming. But it's all in celebration of the night. And we want the audience to have fun," said Sykes.

George Pennacchio talks with three trailblazing women in entertainment journalism about the significance of having three women host the Oscars.

"I think intention is everything. So all our intention is, is to laugh! That doesn't mean we aren't gonna, you know, not make jokes, you know? But it means no one's feelings will be hurt!" said Hall.

Hall, Schumer and Sykes will take the stage one, two or three at a time to host the show, which will take place at Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.

Hosts Wanda Sykes, Amy Schumer and Regina Hall hope to make the 94th Oscars fun and relatable.
