It’s official: Nobody’s hosting the 2019 Oscars

Burke addressed the fallout over Kevin Hart quickly exiting the hosting gig in December after old homophobic tweets resurfaced.

A representative for The Academy has officially confirmed that the Oscars will go ahead without a host following the Kevin Hart controversy.

It's also looking like the bash will be without a main host for the first time in three decades. After that, it was pretty clear that we were going to stay the course.

The first round of Oscars 2019 presenters was announced this morning by Oscars 2019 producer Donna Gigliotti and co-producer and director Glenn Weiss.

They will be joined by Awkwafina, Chis Evans, Whoopi Goldberg, Brie Larson, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, Amandla Stenberg, Charlize Theron, Tessa Thompson and Constance Wu.

Speaking just three weeks before the highest honors in the movie industry are handed out, ABC entertainment president Karey Burke said the February 24 (February 25 AEDT) event would forgo a host and "just have presenters host the Oscars".

Hart, 39, apologized for his past comments in a tweet after stepping down as Oscars host and during his SiriusXM radio show Straight from The Hart in early January.

The previous two Oscars have been hosted by late night funnyman Jimmy Kimmel.

The 91st Academy Awards will take place on Feb 24 at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, California. "This year's show maintains Oscar traditions, and is also evolving to reflect our global audience".

"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 incredible talented artists", he tweeted, just two days after being announced as host.

The 91st Oscars will take place on February 24 at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center.
