No host for 2019 Oscars

The Oscars 2019 are all set to charge ahead without a host this year after Kevin Hart dropped out due to his past homophobic comments that resurfaced on Twitter

No host for 2019 Oscars

A few days after his old tweets went viral, Hart claims the Academy asked that he apologize.

It's been nearly 30 years since that Oscars ceremony, and it's still considered the biggest disaster in the award show's history.

The decision was reached about a month after actor Kevin Hart withdrew from the Oscars hosting gig.

After almost 3 decades, the Oscars producers have decided that the show must go on, even without a host.

"The Academy had been considering welcoming Hart back if he had used the opportunity in an interview with Ellen DeGeneres to demonstrate contrition for his anti-gay jokes and recommit to hosting the show", the Variety report reads. The last time the awards show did this was in 1989.

The CoA has taken on board the recommendation of the BCCI's legal team that Pandya and Rahul be suspended pending an inquiry. Acting secretary Choudhary wanted the pair suspended "immediately".

Also, producers will choose some A-list stars set to introduce each segment of the show.

The Oscars are still scrambling to get a host for the upcoming award show since the idea of not having a host was seemingly not an option. Snow White's entrance was followed by a grueling 12-minute musical number with dancing tables and chairs, Rob Lowe singing "Proud Mary", and lots of other things that made the audience visibly want to die.

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.

".To up the star quotient even further, the show's producers are now lining up appearances by as many big-name cast members from Marvel's sprawling Avengers franchise as possible".
