The Academy has made its decision: The Oscars will continue with no host after Kevin Hart backed out. The last time the awards show did this was in 1989.
Sources told Varietythat producers will select A-listers to introduce segments like the opening monologue and performances. The show will also “focus on starry skits and play up a high-profile year for music in film, thanks to likely nominees Lady Gaga, Dolly Parton, and Kendrick Lamar.”
However, there’s still a chance that they’ll choose a new host before Feb. 25th. If the Academy needs a list of replacements, we have one right here.
