Although the Academy Awards aren’t for another five months, it’s never too soon to start talking about who will take on hosting duties.

It sounds like the 2016 Oscars will have two hosts, according to Entertainment Weekly.

EW got the confirmation from David Hill, one of the two producers who were announced Tuesday as overseeing the show. 

“There will be multiple hosts for sure — there will be two,” Hill said.

Who would be the best duo for the job?

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are an obvious choice. But would they want to do it after hosting the Golden Globes for the last three years?

Key and Peele would be a great choice after the universal bashing the Academy received last year for its nominees (and voting body) not being diverse enough.

In 2010, Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin teamed up and received positive reviews.
