After a show-stealing performance at the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, minister Michael Curry has been invited to host next year’s Academy Awards.

The Academy was impressed with Curry’s captivating performance at the Royal Wedding and believe that he has the right combination of humour and Martin Luther King quotes to be a hit at The Oscars.

“I just like the way that he talks about fire, without telling me I’m going to burn,” explained Robert Downey Jr.

The show promises to be an extravagance packed full of surprises, with rumours of a lifetime award for Sean Bean who is now up to 167 on-screen deaths.

The performance will also feature a religious debate between Curry and Tom Cruise.
