The Oscars Will Have No Host For 2019

The Oscars Will Have No Host For 2019

In an interview with Stephen Colbert, he reveals how he would open the ceremony if he were the host.

"Whoopi really is game to do it though".

"I have an understanding that I've addressed it, and I've said everything that I can possibly say", Hart told Strahan on Wednesday.

"I don't actually think the Oscars does need a host", said Toronto producer J. Miles Dale, who won an Oscar past year for "The Shape of Water". "I'm not gonna say anything, and I'm definitely got gonna say it here, but the chances are very slim".

Now, according to a report in Variety, the awards ceremony will go ahead without a central host for only the second time ever in the show's history.

In response to Colbert asking if there's anything about the way he's handled the conversation over the last few weeks, Hart delivered an emphatic no.

Manolas has a £30.75million release clause in his contract with the Italian club but it does not become active until the summer. He is now expected to be on his way to Manchester United academy where he will continue his football career under Nicky Buti.

She added: "You have apologised".

Therefore, he doesn't understand why he has to apologise again.

"You have to acknowledge what went on and acknowledge the pain of other people", he said.

However, Hart has held his ground.

"[I'm] 39 years old, nearly 40, I gotta get it all". And when asked if he would host in the future he said: "It's hard to predict what can happen". The changes include shaving the runtime to three hours and cutting less prominent award categories from the live show.

Last week, Hart had said he was re-evaluating that decision after the openly-gay comedian Ellen DeGeneres, a past Oscars host, said she had called the Academy to advocate for Hart. Likely nominees would be Lady Gaga, Kendrick Lamar and Dolly Parton, rather than having one individual kicking the ceremony off with a monologue of quips.
