The Oscars will have no host this year

The Oscars 2019 are all set to charge ahead without a host this year after Kevin Hart dropped out due to his past homophobic comments that resurfaced on Twitter

With Kevin Hart firmly ruling himself out of contention, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has been left scrambling to find a host for February's 91st Academy Awards, and if a report from THR is to be believed, they may be ready to call upon the Avengers to save the day.

It's been nearly 30 years since that Oscars ceremony, and it's still considered the biggest disaster in the award show's history.

A few days after his old tweets went viral, Hart claims the Academy asked that he apologize.

Now that Kevin Hart has officially turned down the second chance at hosting the Oscars, even after some poking and prodding from Ellen DeGeneres, the ceremony is officially without a host.

The last time the evening had no host was during the 61st Academy Awards in March 1989, which began with a widely mocked musical number starring Rob Lowe and Snow White.

After almost 3 decades, the Oscars producers have decided that the show must go on, even without a host.

Are you excited about the prospect of seeing The Avengers hosting the Oscars?

"I want everybody to know I'm done with it", Hart told Good Morning America's host.

Producers will choose a crop of A-listers to introduce various segments instead of relying on one host who usually has a couple of friendly jibes at the nominated films and actors. "It's a choice that I've personally made to say I'm not addressing it anymore".

According to the Hollywood trade, the Academy is booking as much of the cast as possible, though it hasn't been reported whether the Avengers castmembers in question would appear individually or as a group.
