ABC announces Oscars will be host-less

News

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4 News) This year’s Academy Awards telecast will not have a host.

ABC, which will broadcast the 2019 Oscars later this month, announced the ceremony will be host-less.

Actor and comedian Kevin Hart was revealed to be the host back in December, only to step down due to criticism over past homophobic comments.

It’s the first time an Oscar telecast has been without a host in 30 years.
