With the Oscars just six weeks out, the Motion Picture Academy is officially bidding farewell to the idea of a single host for Hollywood’s glitziest night. The decision to trek on without a single marquee name leading the night’s festivities comes in the aftermath of the publicity nightmare that was Kevin Hart, who led a brief, failed apology tour after he stepped down from the gig over resurfaced, homophobic tweets. The academy will instead round up a “crop of A-listers” to introduce various segments throughout the night, rather than relying on one single face, though producers are said to be “scrambling” to assemble the talent in time. This year’s ceremony will air live from Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre on Feb. 24, with films like A Star Is Born, Roma, Green Book and The Favourite expected to win big.
