Academy names Awards pro­duc­ers

Toronto Star - - ENTERTAINMENT -

The Os­cars fi­nally have their pro­duc­ers: Michael De Luca and Jen­nifer Todd will pro­duce the 89th Academy Awards.

The an­nounce­ment Fri­day by the Academy of Mo­tion Pictures Arts and Sciences came after wide­spread con­jec­ture over who would take the reins of next year’s cer­e­mony. Regi­nald Hudlin and David Hill, who pro­duced this year’s show, were jet­ti­soned after the Chris Rock- hosted broad­cast, marked by the “Os­carsSoWhite” back­lash, drew 34.4 mil­lion view­ers, one of the show’s small­est au­di­ences in re­cent years.
