Tiffany Haddish and Maya Rudolph hilariously teamed up to present in two categories at the 90th Academy Awards, and now the Internet is here for the pair co-hosting the Oscars in 2019. Kimmel has hosted the Oscars for the last couple of years, and the Oscars asked him back this year since 2017 was so iconic. But the latest ratings were not only down, but the lowest ever. Some viewers call Haddish and Rudolph much more relatable and diverse. Should they host the Oscars in 2019?

Deadline's Nellie Andreeva reported that the Academy Awards' ratings were down from last year. She writes:

But the good news did not carry over to ratings for the 90th Academy Awards, which (correctly) crowned The Shape of Water as Best Picture. Last night’s ceremony, which aired live from 8 PM – 11:54 PM EST, averaged 26.5 million viewers (Live+same day) . That was down -19% from last year’s 32.9 million viewers, a nine-year low.

Haddish and Rudolph presented Best Documentary Short Subject and Best Live Action Short Film. And they crack many jokes in between like "white people with clipboard." Viewers want them to host Oscars 2019.

TIME reports:

Rudolph: “Don’t worry. There are so many white people to come!”
Haddish: “So many! We just came from backstage and there are tons of them back there! And not just movie stars—there are white people walking around with headsets, white people with clipboards. Now, I’m personally not a fan of white people with clipboards, because I’m always wondering what are they writing down about me?”

E! News highlighted some of the best moments from the ceremony, thanks in part to the telecast's acclaimed host. Kimmel could come back for the third year in a row.
