Regina Hall, Amy Schumer, and Wanda Sykes created history on Monday as shared the stage and hosted the 94th Oscars ceremony.

The announcement was made on television. “Good morning, America. I’m not sure who thought this was a good idea," the I Feel Pretty actor said. "But I am hosting the Oscars along with my good friends Wanda Sykes and Regina Hall."
