Oscars 2019 will have no host for first time in 30 years

Oscars 2019 will have no host for first time in 30 years

With Kevin Hart out of the picture to host the Oscars, the Fiji Water girl from the Golden Globes reportedly joked that she'd be willing to fill in.

The upcoming 91st Academy Awards will have no host this year-the first time in 30 years-according to a report.

The show producers are trying to move forward with a broadcast that will focus on starry skits and play a high-profile year for music in films, owing to the nominations of singers like Lady Gaga, Dolly Parton and Kendrick Lamar.

"I have made the choice to step down from hosting this year's Oscar's.this is because I do not want to be a distraction on a night that should be celebrated by so many wonderful talented artists", he wrote on Twitter.

However, on Wednesday, January 9, (Thursday, January 10, Philippine time), Hart made an appearance on NBC's Good Morning America and officially closed any doors on becoming the Oscars emcee this year.

After the Oscar controversy, Ellen DeGeneres reached out to him in an attempt to bring him back as host.

So now, the Oscars will be looking to go for a more "variety show" vibe, with a number of A-listers coming out for short mini-hosting gigs, instead of one overall host. As we heard last weekend, the plan is to have as many A-list presenters as possible in place of a comedian host to keep the show going smoothly, and among them just might be as many as of Marvel's Avengers as possible.

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