Lena Waithe: ‘I like the idea of a really gay ass black person hosting the Oscars’

Lena Waithe has shared her thoughts on who should host the 2019 Oscars

Actress, screenwriter, and producer Lena Waithe has shared her thoughts about Kevin Hart. Plus, she opened up about who would be her choice to host the 2019 Oscars.

Kevin Hart controversy

At the Golden Globes last Sunday (6 January), Waithe spoke to Variety about the controversy surrounding Kevin Hart and who will end up hosting the Oscars this year.

‘We gotta make sure that the gay community is no longer the butt of the joke,’ Waithe said. ‘I think we gotta make this a teachable moment.’

‘I don’t think [Hart] understood the ramifications of what he said,’ she added. ‘We should stand firm in what we did and try to challenge everybody else not to do that kind of thing anymore.’

Wanda Sykes as Oscars Host

In her ideal world, the host of the 91st Academy Awards (taking place on 24 February) would be ‘a really gay ass black person.’ She suggested comedian Wanda Sykes.

‘I like the idea of a really gay ass black person hosting,” she says. “Wanda would be amazing.’

Wanda Sykes happens to be on GSN’s list of 13 LGBTI people we’d like to see host the award show.

Pose and LGBTI Representation

Additionally, Waithe spoke to GLAAD about Ryan Murphy’s hit FX show Pose. The groundbreaking show was nominated for two Golden Globe awards. Pose features a diverse cast, which Waithe believes is important for LGBTI representation.

‘There’s a lot of kids that watch that show and it’s changing lives, so let’s continue to do that,’ Waithe said about the need for more shows like Pose.
