Oscars to have no host this year

It's been nearly 30 years since that Oscars ceremony, and it's still considered the biggest disaster in the award show's history. Hart dropped out within hours of being selected, when he refused to apologise for his past homophobic remarks that emerged on Twitter just after his selection.

Sources told Variety that producers will select A-listers to introduce segments like the opening monologue and performances.

Having multiple hosts coming from such a beloved film is a pretty great path for the Oscars to take which could also be the new way of hosting shows in the future.

The Academy was reportedly enthusiastic about wanting their initial pick comedian Kevin Hart to return to the position.

With Kevin Hart stepping down from hosting duties of The Oscars ceremony in February, the event is now host-less. 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 problem with that is that this would be the first time since 1989 that the Oscars went hostless, and that night also had a variety show vibe to it.

The 91st Oscars will air on February 24, 2019, and is being produced by Donna Gigliotti and co-produced and directed by Glenn Weiss.

The Hollywood Reporter reported that the show has asked as many Avengers stars possible to reunite on the show's stage, in hopes of adding some punch to the 2019 show format.
