Shortly after Kevin Hart was announced as the host of the 2019 Oscars, he stepped down after catching backlash for homophobic tweets and stand up routines he shared earlier in his career. The comedian first refused to apologize saying he'd apologized in the past.

The Academy nearly reconsidered Hart after he agreed to sit down with talk show host Ellen Degeneres in early January.

Speaking to The New York Post " s "Page Six' column, a source said: "Everyone is hoping they'll do a series of presenters and have no formal host". Ellen tried to encourage him to return, even calling the Academy to reinstate Hart.

Top of their wishlist is the cast of Marvel's Avengers, a couple of months ahead of the release of the franchise's next - and apparently final - instalment Endgame, according to Variety.

It resulted in one particular segment that featured Rob Lowe singing "Proud Mary" with Snow White (?!?!?!?!), and essentially ruined the career of the producer (Allan Carr - the guy who produced Grease) of the ceremony. "I'm trying to think of the last time that I read a review of the Oscars the next day where everyone is raving about it-it's been a long time". Here we are, just six weeks from the live air date on February 24, and the Academy still doesn't have a host for the 91st Academy Awards-or perhaps it's more accurate to say that they have finally found their host.
