Oscars Decides to Go Hostless for the First Time in 30 Years

The Academy Awards will forgo a proper host for the first time in three decades, according to a new report from Variety.

Sources told Variety, “Producers will select a crop of A-listers to introduce various segments instead of relying on one marquee name to kick things off in a monologue filled with Trump zingers.” The show is also expected to “play up a high-profile year for music in film, thanks to likely nominees Lady Gaga, Dolly Parton, and Kendrick Lamar,” according to Variety.

It’s a huge departure from traditional Oscar telecasts, which rely on one or two hosts to open the show and emcee the evening.
