Oscars 2022: Amy Schumer wants Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to appear at the Oscars

The ‘Life & Beth’ star is even trying to figure out a way to virtually get Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky at the ceremony during the Russian invasion of his country.

“I actually pitched, I wanted to find a way to deploy Zelensky satellite or make a tape or something, just because so many eyes are on the Oscars,” Schumer said during an appearance on “The Drew Barrymore Show.” , where she was promoting the 94th Academy Awards.

Schumer continued: “I think it’s a great opportunity to comment at least a few things. I have a few jokes that highlight the kind of current situation. I mean, so many terrible things are happening that it seems hard to focus in which.”

As usual, Schumer says she’s not afraid to tackle hard topics.

“I’m not afraid to go there, but it’s not me who produces the Oscars,” she said.

“I think in a way there’s definitely pressure to be like, ‘This is a holiday, let people forget, we just want to have this night,'” Schumer said. “But it’s, well, we have so many eyes and ears on this show.”

Schumer will host the ceremony along with Regina Hall and Wanda Sykes.

The Oscars will air on ABC on Sunday, March 27.
