Oscars to go without a host in 2019 following Kevin Hart controversy

Avengers

Also, producers will choose some A-list stars set to introduce each segment of the show.

The show will go on for the Oscars without a host for the first time in decades, according to a new report from Variety. Hart dropped out within hours of being selected, when he refused to apologise for his past homophobic remarks that emerged on Twitter just after his selection.

"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 fantastic talented artists", he wrote on Twitter.

Comedian and a former Oscars host Ellen Degeneres had Hart on her show and pleaded with him to reconsider, saying the Academy wanted him back.

Brutally cold to start Thursday, snow, ice return later in the weekend
A period of light snow likely breaks out statewide early Saturday before a warmer wedge of air moves northward. Most of Virginia and parts of West Virginia were placed under a winter storm watch Friday morning.

The Oscars are still scrambling to get a host for the upcoming award show since the idea of not having a host was seemingly not an option.

A day later, Hart announced he was formally turning down the hosting gig. "For the last time, I am done addressing this". But the Reporter adds that in an attempt to make up for the lack of host, the Academy's plan is to bring in the cast members of the Avengers films, among other stars. Snow White's entrance was followed by a grueling 12-minute musical number with dancing tables and chairs, Rob Lowe singing "Proud Mary", and lots of other things that made the audience visibly want to die.

The 91st Oscars will air on February 24, 2019, and is being produced by Donna Gigliotti and co-produced and directed by Glenn Weiss.
