It's official, Oscars will take place without a host

"We have a very exciting opener planned", ABC president Karey Burke teased at the Television Critics Association on Tuesday (via The Hollywood Reporter), adding, "We are not going to go straight into people thanking their agents". Burke is aware of the trend and is looking into it, but she still has faith that the Academy is putting on a show people will want to watch. She also mentioned that a "lack of clarity" over the ceremony kept the Oscars in the headlines. "There was an idea that they were going to have the presenters just host the Oscars", she added.

The original Bewitched series starred Elizabeth Montgomery as Samantha Stephens, a seemingly normal housewife who is hiding a secret: that she's really a witch with magical powers.

Owing to the homophobic tweets that surfaced online back in December, comedian Kevin Hart stepped down from hosting the Oscar ceremony. "We all got on board with that". "Producers wisely made a decision to not have a host and to go back to having the presenters and movies be the stars, and that be the best way to keep the show at a brisk three hours". "She promised to keep the February 24 telecast down to just three hours", Del Barco added. "This is going to be a big turnout for this".

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.

The controversy about Hart's tweets comes after a hard few years for the Academy that have seen Envelopegate, the OscarsSoWhite campaign and the scrapping of a proposed popular film award category.
