The 2019 Academy Awards is going to be a first of its kind in the Oscars three decade’s history.
The question of who will be the new host has become the subject of conversations ever since its would-be host, Kevin Hart’s jokes on the LGBTQ community were dug out.
Kevin whose dream was to host the Oscars was given the opportunity to apologise again or step down. He chose to step down.
The issue was once again raised after his interview with television host and member of the gay community, Ellen DeGeneres. He apologised a second time but has made it clear that he is done talking about it.
He is also not certain of hosting it anymore even though the Academy has said that it will welcome him with open arms.
As a result, the Academy organisers are trying out something new: to go on without a host.
The producers are planning to get prerecorded skits and A-listers introduce new categories.
Let’s see how that goes.
