Who is Hosting Oscars?


2019 will mark the first time in 30 years the Oscars go without a host. Following controversy involving resurfaced homophobic tweets from formerly appointed host Kevin Hart, the comedian decided to step down from the job. Although he's been urged to do the gig by celebrities such as Ellen DeGeneres, Hart was stern with his decision. The ceremony will rely on multiple presenters to do the job justice, such as Sarah Paulson, Javier Bardem, and Chadwick Boseman, among others.
