The Oscars will have no host this year

The upcoming 91st Academy Awards will have no host this year-the first time in 30 years-according to a report.

The Oscars have been reinventing themselves with the addition of new categories, and now a shakeup to the show's traditional format. An insider also revealed that the broadcast will rely heavily on music thanks to the success of films such as A Star is Born.

As THR goes on to point out, this wouldn't be the first time the MCU family's been brought together for an Oscars appearance: back in 2013, Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner and Samuel L. Jackson all appeared onstage together. "I sincerely apologize to the LGBTQ community for my insensitive words from my past".

Kevin Hart had been lined up to take the job as host of the Oscars, but then promptly stepped down from the position once a series of homophobic tweets from his past resurfaced shortly after he was given the gig. However, the appearance was met with a hearty amount of criticism, and Hart officially chose to move on from the possibility of hosting the Oscars. The producers and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the group behind the Oscars, are looking for top talent needed to carry the telecast, which is just six weeks from airing live, on February 24, from Hollywood's Dolby Theatre.

Of course, there is still a slim possibility that some awesome celeb will step forward to be the host for the show.

Oscars Awards 2019 is going to be something that no one will forget.
