The Oscars will once again go forward without a host next month.
According to the details, the Oscars will again go without a host this year.
ABC Entertainment president Karey Burke made the announcement in a presentation at the Television Critics Association press tour.
“Together with the Academy, we have decided there will be no traditional host, repeating for us what worked last year,” Karey Burke told.
“[It will have] huge entertainment values, big musical numbers, comedy and star power.”
Last year, the Oscars decided to go without a host — the first time in three decades.
Comedian Kevin Hart had initially been announces as a host.
Afterwards, the old tweets resurfaced and botched an apology followed, Hart stepped down from the role.

Last year’s ceremony rose 12% to 29.6 million viewers, up from an all-time low the year prior.
The event considered a success and the show enjoyed a year-on-year increase in ratings.
However, the host-less format has not always been so well received.
