The Oscars Will Probably Not Have A Host


The 90th Academy Awards are set to air in less than two months and still, no host has been announced. Uproxx reports the current plan appears to be to go hostless for the first time since 1989. As of now, insiders say the idea will be to have a bunch of celebs present in snippets, as a sort of revolving door series of hosts. This idea was floated back in early December, right after Kevin Hart went from last-minute host to disgraced former host in just 24 hours. Hart stepped down due to outrage over homophobic jokes and tweets that were exposed right after he got the gig. In the award show's 90 years, five ceremonies have done fine without one.
