No host for 2019 Oscars

No host for 2019 Oscars

The Hollywood Reporter has the update on the Academy's plan to proceed without a host for the 2019 Oscars ceremony that will be broadcast on Sunday, February 24.

It's been nearly 30 years since that Oscars ceremony, and it's still considered the biggest disaster in the award show's history. Ellen tried to encourage him to return, even calling the Academy to reinstate Hart.

Sources say that producers will select a crop of A-listers to introduce various segments instead of relying on one top name to kick things off the ceremony with the usual monologue and montage. He stepped down just two days after being named as this year's host after facing an onslaught of social media outrage over homophobic comments he made in the past.

The US comedian and actor pulled out of hosting the award ceremony in December amid controversy over homophobic tweets he posted nearly a decade ago.

With less than 24 hours before the first match of a three-game one-day series, it is hardly an ideal preparation for the tourists. Pandya has apologised for his remarks, saying he got "carried away by the nature" of the show.

Hart was originally tapped to host the Oscars in December.

The "Night School" actor appeared on "Good Morning America" Wednesday and addressed the ongoing controversy surrounding his short stint as the planned host of the 91st Academy Awards ceremony.

This year-for the first time since that attractive, glittering auto crash three decades ago-the Oscars will not have a host.

"We're looking at how we can shake up the traditional awards show format", Beth Janson, CEO of the Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television, teased in an interview this week. Producers have reportedly asked the "Avengers" cast to assemble.
