7 Best Awards Show Hosts Ever

Show Hosts: The job of an awards show host is quite challenging. Although there are numerous presenters for each individual prize at most awards shows, the host is the one who keeps everything together. They must be professional, poised, and funny—not rigid. And if they don’t start off well, it’s difficult to turn things around. A poorly received opening monologue can set the tone for a painfully drawn-out and uncomfortable performance.

Those who watch from home may think of several award show hosts who really messed up. These hosts generate a lot of internet conversation among those who wish to repeatedly experience the humiliation firsthand. However, it’s equally critical to acknowledge the excellent work of the hosts. It’s a delicate dance to roll with the punch, maintain the enthusiasm, and not overshadow the talent.

These are the top 7 Award Show Hosts in history

7. Johnny Carson

Johnny Carson is the name that most people think of when they think of the stereotypical host of an awards show. He began his career in radio, but after moving to television, he discovered his calling and never turned back. For thirty years, Carson served as the face of the popular television show The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. Not until 2013 did David Letterman’s show surpass him as the longest-running talk show in the country. Subsequent shows reflect and feel the impact of him.

6. Rosie O’Donnell

Rosie O’Donnell relishes branching out into a variety of fields, both inside and outside the entertainment sector. She is a producer, philanthropist, and has worked in film, television, Broadway, hosting her own programme, and co-hosting The View. It is incomprehensible how she managed to fit in several award show presenting assignments and do them well. Between the mid-1990s and the early 2000s, she presented the Kids’ Choice Awards eight times. Later, when she ran for three Tony Awards and two Grammy Awards, she shifted to an older audience.

5. Jon Stewart

Comedian and political analyst Jon Stewart presented The Daily Show from 1999 until 2015. Even after the incredibly gifted Trevor Noah took over, a lot of people still cherished what Stewart brought to the programme. He knew when to turn things lighthearted during serious conversations and interviews and when to turn the mayhem and conflict of the world into a joke. Although it can be difficult to decide when and how much to make fun of current events, Stewart succeeded.

4. Jimmy Kimmel

The other host of the late-night Jimmy talk programme is Jimmy Kimmel. Not only is Jimmy Kimmel Live! popular because of its celebrity guests, but also because of its unremarkable interview series, Family Feud portions, and recurring joke in which he plays parents telling their children that they had eaten all of their Halloween candy. Inhumane? Perhaps somewhat? Funny? In a big way. Kimmel has performed in plays, but it seems like he is now concentrating on other projects. He still hosts, and every time he takes the stage, he often receives positive feedback.

3. John Mulaney

John Mulaney is another comedian who became well-known in the business as a result of his work on Saturday Night Live. During his five years on the show, he made the most of his time there before leaving, never fading into the background. He’s worked on a tonne of other projects since leaving the programme, but he never forgot where he came from—he made several appearances on Saturday Night Live. The course of Mulaney’s career deviated from what most people would have predicted. He composed a musical comedy for kids and made his Broadway debut as a pair.

2. Ellen Degeneres

Although most people know Ellen DeGeneres as the host of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, or just The Ellen Show, she had a rather successful acting career in the 1990s. Her reputation and the show’s reputation have been clouded by controversy in recent years, which has damaged the legacy in some ways. Considering that, her talk show did enjoy a good run and was a huge hit for a daytime talk programme that appealed to a wide age range of viewers. Her roles voicing the endearing blue tang Dory in Finding Nemo and the eagerly awaited Finding Dory are the only two endeavours that could come close to the success this show generated for her.

1. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler

As stand-alone comedians, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are both excellent. Some of the most enduring and well-made entertainment products of the past few decades may be attributed to Fey. Thirty Rock and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is only one of her resume’s highlights. Poehler’s role as Leslie Knope in Parks and Recreation and her outstanding voice acting as Joy in Pixar’s Inside Out solidify her status as a formidable force.
