In an effort to fix the PR nightmare #OscarsSoWhite, Page Six is reporting that the Academy is searching high and low for notable Black celebs to present at the show. Specifically, they’re looking for someone to present the Best Picture award.
Names are floating around like Oprah Winfrey and Morgan Freeman, according to Page Six. Obviously, Will Smith isn’t an option because he’ll be boycotting with wife Jada.
Quincy Jones confirmed that he was approached about presenting, but said he wouldn’t do it unless the Academy also gave him five minutes to discuss the lack of diversity.
