According to reports, while the organizers were looking to find a replacement for a host for 2019, but finally, settled for a ceremony with no emcee.

ABC Entertainment President Karey Burke said the ceremony on 24 February in Los Angeles would forgo a host and "just have presenters host the Oscars".

"I, ironically, have found that the lack of clarity around the Oscars has kept the Oscars really in the conversation", she said. While Burke wouldn't confirm which categories might be getting axed for television, she did talk up the performances.

It's a pretty big question, which is why over the next three weeks we will be asking you to vote for your favorites as the top films battle it out to see which movie is actually the best picture ever. Cuse added that he would personally be OK if ABC brought someone else on to reboot Lost with characters who go to the island at a different period of time.

This year, Oscars 2019, will not have an official host and the president of ABC Entertainment confirmed the news.

"There wasn't messiness beyond the Kevin Hart situation. There was an idea that they were going to have the presenters just host the Oscars", she added. "We all got on board with that".

"The main goal, which I'm told the Academy promised a year ago, is to keep the show to three hours", Burke added.

The exec did not go into details on the actual ceremony, but shared that she and producers plan to meet later this week to discuss specifics on the telecast.

The rumors of a hostless Oscars ceremony first began after Kevin Hart stepped down as the host back in Decembers, just days after he accepted the gig due to a controversy with old tweets.

"I have made the choice to step down from hosting this year's Oscars", wrote Hart, who as well as his stand-up work has recently starred in Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and Night School. I am evolving and want to continue to do so.

"I would be less excited if they wanted to use the characters that we had in our show", he said.
