NO HOST, BUT THE OSCARS WON’T TAKE IT TO HART
With just over a month to go for the night, the team of the 2019 Academy Awards is planning to rope in multiple presenters
Plenty of speculation on possible replacements later, the 91st Academy Awards are reportedly set to go without a host this year.
Instead of a solo artist, the team of the 2019 Academy Awards is planning to recruit multiple celebrities to present different portions of the show, Variety reports.
However, since only six weeks are left until the show takes place, the producers of the prestigious award show are struggling to find A-list celebrities who would be willing to host the night, a job that seems fraught with possibilities of past misadventures surfacing.
This comes weeks after actor-comedian Kevin Hart was announced as the host of the 2019 award ceremony, only to pull out later.
Hart stepped down from hosting the Oscars after his tweets from 2009-2011 containing comments of a “homophobic” nature. Shortly after, the Academy asked him to issue an official statement apologising for his remarks. Hart, however, refused to apologise for his past comments, and quit the awards show.
