The Oscars are reportedly all set to kick start the award show with no host for the fist time in nearly 30 years.
Instead of a solo artist, the team of 2019 Academy Awards is planning to recruit multiple celebrities to present different portions of the show, Variety reports.

Earlier, American actor-comedian Kevin Hart was announced as the host of the 2019 award ceremony but the ‘Jumanji’ actor stepped down after his tweets from 2009-2011 containing derogatory language went viral. Hart, in his tweets, had made disparaging comments about sexuality.
Shortly after his ‘Homophobic’ tweets went viral, the Academy, offering an ultimatum to the actor, asked him to issue an official statement apologising for his remarks. Hart confirmed that he would not be hosting despite a public push from Ellen DeGeneres to do so.
The idea of a hostless awards show does sound isolating. However, the Academy has not confirmed the development yet. The Oscars are all set to take place on February 25th.
