>>I'm going to take a stab at trying to predict how the
>>first half of the season will go. Will be interesting
>>to see how many I get correct/wrong.
>>Sep.30- Steve Carell/Arcade Fire
>>Carell will be promoting "Battle of the Sexes" and
>>also coming off of "Despicable Me 3" this summer.
>>Kristen Wiig and Emma Stone could make cameos. Arcade
>>Fire have an album coming out at the end of this month
>>and have been the MG for the season premiere before.
>>Oct. 7- Gal Gadot/Halsey
>>Gadot was one of the breakout stars of the summer and
>>I figure she will host early in the season a la Margot
>>Robbie last season. Halsey was the first woman to have
>>a #1 album on the Billboard charts this year (A feat
>>only matched by Katy Perry and Lorde so far, and they
>>already were MGs last season)
>>Oct. 14th- Ryan Gosling/Camila Cabello
>>Gosling will be promoting "Blade Runner 2049". He
>>seemed to have fun the last time he hosted. Cabello's
>>album will probably be getting a big promotional push
>>from her record label when it comes out in September.
>>(Don't know if they will instead do shows on the 7th,
>>14th, and 21st. If so, they would be able to do more
>>of a Halloween show on the 21st. This might be a good
>>place for Jon Hamm to host- They could even bring back
>>Will Forte to cameo, he will be promoting a new season
>>of Last Man on Earth anyway)
>>November 4th- Kristen Bell/Foo Fighters
>>Bell will be promoting "Bad Moms Christmas" and also
>>the new season of "The Good Place" on NBC. It becomes
>>harder to predict MGs at this point but Foo Fighters
>>do have a new album coming out Sep. 15th and they've
>>been the MG many, many times before.
>>November 11th- Ben Affleck/Taylor Swift
>> This seems like the logical place for Affleck to host
>>to promote "Justice League". There's the distinct
>>possibility that Taylor will have new material to
>>promote by this point. If not, there's always the
>>possibility she could be a combo host/MG in December.
>>November 18th- Will Ferrell/ ?
>>This is the Thanksgiving show and Ferrell could host
>>to promote "Daddy's Home 2". MG could be Taylor or
>>someone else- fall album releases are kinda up in the
>>air at this point.
>>Dec. 2- Could be James Franco to promote his movie
>>"The Disaster Artist" (in which plays "The Room"
>>director Tommy Wiseau). He has hosted around Christmas
>>before. I really think they'll probably save any Star
>>Wars hosts for January like they have the last 2
>>Dec. 9- This would actually be a good play for Taylor
>>to be the host/MG if she doesn't do one or the other
>>in November. Other possibilities: Kevin Hart or Jack
>>Black for "Jumanji". I doubt Dwayne will host again so
>>soon- and I really hope it's not Kevin Hart. Of those
>>3 I'd most like to see JB host again because he hasn't
>>done it in a while.
>>Could also be Matt Damon or Jason Sudeikis for
>>"Downsizing". Sudekis doesn't strike me as someone who
>>is really interested in hosting though.
>>Dec. 16- Anna Kendrick for Pitch Perfect 3
>>Kendrick seems like someone who should have hosted
>>again by now, her last episode was pretty good.
>>I realize I leaned kind of heavily on repeat hosts
>>except for Gadot and Bell.
>>Possibilites for first-time hosts: Kumail Nanjiani
>>(His movie "The Big Sick" has done pretty well),
>>Donald Glover (I think they'll save him for next year
>>though closer to when the Han Solo movie comes out),
>>Tom Hiddleston for "Thor: Ragnorok" (could predict him
>>being boring in the same way Benedict Cumberbatch
>>was), Hailee Steinfeld (probably long shot- although
>>she is becoming more successful as an
>>I know people want both Will Forte and Bob Odenkirk to
>>host but I don't see either of those happening. We
>>also talked about Larry David hosting again but maybe
>>he would just cameo? Bernie Sanders is not the big
>>deal he was back in 2016. I could certainly see him
>>cameoing in a Trump sketch near the beginning of the
