The Oscars to Go Without a Host for a Second Consecutive Year

No host again for next month's Oscars

The network's Karey Burke said the show will stick to "what worked for us past year: huge entertainment value, big musical numbers, big comedy, and star power", Entertainment Tonight reports.

The Oscars ceremony will be without a host again this year. Voting for the Academy Awards concluded Tuesday night with the nominations set to be announced on January 13.

The 92nd Academy Awards will air live February 9 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.




The 2020 Academy Awards ceremony will be hostless for a second year.

The Oscars will again go without a host next month, repeating a format credited with boosting ratings past year, USA network ABC confirmed Wednesday.

Comedian Kevin Hart had initially been announced as host, but after old tweets resurfaced and a botched apology followed, Hart stepped down from the role. The telecast reached 29.6 million viewers, up from 26.5 million the year before (though still down from the 33-40 million the Oscars were routinely drawing in the years prior).
