The Academy Reportedly Decides To Go ‘Hostless’ After Kevin Hart Controversy

Looks like the final verdict on a host for the 91st Oscars is in and the show will be going without a host. 


It’s been a pretty complicated couple of weeks for the Academy Awards as Kevin Heart stepped down as the shows 91st Host. 

According to Variety, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has decided that the 2019 ceremony will be conducted without a host.

There was speculation that this would happen.

Since Heart stepped down, no celebrities have spoken up about taking his position. Actually many have openly said they would never take the hosting role. 

Sources say that with the show being hostless, the Academy will just have A list stars introducing each segment. 

If these reports from Variety are indeed true, this will be the first time in 30 years that the show has gone hostless. 

On Wednesday during an interview with Good Morning America, he said that he officially was not hosting the show. 

“I say I’m done with it,” Hart told host Michael Strahan. “It gets no more energy from me. That’s why I said for the last time, I am addressing this. There’s no more conversation about it. I’m literally, I’m over that. I’m over the moment and I’m about today, so if it’s accepted, great. If it’s not, then it’s nothing I can control.”
