The 91st Oscars will take place on February 24 at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center.
New ABC Entertainment president Karey Burke confirmed Tuesday that the 2019 Academy Awards will be held without a host for the first time in decades.
The Oscars ceremony has gone without a host only once before in its 91-year history, in 1989.
Burke said the decision was taken after what she called "the messiness" over the Hart withdrawal and an attempt to revive his chances. In addition, it was announced that Gustavo Dudamel and the LA Philharmonic will perform during the Oscars 2019 "In Memoriam" segment.
The exec did not go into details on the actual ceremony, but shared that she and producers plan to meet later this week to discuss specifics on the telecast.
"Producers wisely chose to not have a host and to go back to having the presenters and movies be the stars, and that be the best way to keep the show at a brisk three hours".
"After that, it was pretty clear that we were going to stay the course and just have presenters host the Oscars".
The nominees took part in the annual Oscars luncheon and group photo on Monday.
He said: "I have made the choice to step down from hosting this year's Oscar's... this is because I do not want to be a distraction on a night that should be celebrated by so many incredible talented artists". "This year's show maintains Oscar traditions, and is also evolving to reflect our global audience". "It's really compelling. People really care".
Mexican drama Roma and British historical comedy The Favouritelead the Oscars nominations with 10 nods apiece. "We are not going to go straight into people thanking their agents".
