Who is hosting the 2020 Oscar’s?

Just like last year, the Oscar’s will not have a single host for 2020.

Comedian Kevin Hart was supposed to present the show in 2019 but pulled out when historic homophobic tweets resurfaced – which he initially refused to apologise for.

In the absence of a host, several celebrities took to the stage to hand out awards – and the format was credited for giving the ceremony a ratings boost last year.

Commenting on the decision to not have a host, BC entertainment president Karey Burke told Deadline: “Together with the Academy, we have decided there will be no traditional host, repeating for us what worked last year.

“It will have huge entertainment values, big musical numbers, comedy and star power.”

Talk show host Jimmy Kimmel was of course the last official Oscar’s host back in 2018.
