2019 Oscars to go ahead without a host after departure of Kevin Hart

The Oscars will be held without a host in 2019. 

According to Variety, the show's producers and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences have agreed that they will not have a central host for the ceremony, which takes place in six weeks' time. 

Instead of the usual format, it is thought producers are looking to use a range of Hollywood's A-list talent to take charge of different segments.

There may also be more musical performances during this year's show than usual. 

The revised show comes after Kevin Hart stepped down as host of the show, only 24 hours after being confirmed in the role. 

Hart's decision came after it emerged that he had tweeted anti-gay slurs earlier in his career. 

This year’s Oscars will take place on February 24th at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. 

Plans for a new category aimed at rewarding "outstanding achievement in popular film" have been delayed and will not take effect for the 2019 show.
