The Oscars are once again going to go without a host.
The head of ABC Entertainment, Karey Burke, has cofirmed for Variety that the upcoming film awards show will have “no traditional host”.
“We expect that we’re going to have a very commercial set of nominations and a lot of incredible elements have come together that make us think we are going to have a very entertaining show again,” Burke said when asked why the decision was made to again go hostless.
The 2019 Oscars were the first to go hostless since 1989. Kevin Hart had originally been announced as the host, but he stepped down just days after the announcement after several of his homophobic tweets were resurfaced.
