Instead, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which issues the awards, will go with different celebrities introducing each segment.

When the tweets resurfaced, The Academy asked him to apologise but he refused to.

It's been nearly 30 years since that Oscars ceremony, and it's still considered the biggest disaster in the award show's history.

So now, the Oscars will be looking to go for a more "variety show" vibe, with a number of A-listers coming out for short mini-hosting gigs, instead of one overall host.

Hart will not be returning to host the Oscars and has emphatically said so.

No worries if you can't be faffed, T3 will have everything you need to know about the new smartphone. There has been lots of speculation about the direction Samsung may go with their flagship this year.

The Academy nearly reconsidered Hart after he agreed to sit down with talk show host Ellen Degeneres in early January.

With Kevin Hart stepping down from hosting duties of The Oscars ceremony in February, the event is now host-less.

However, on Wednesday, January 9, (Thursday, January 10, Philippine time), Hart made an appearance on NBC's Good Morning America and officially closed any doors on becoming the Oscars emcee this year. "Right now from a time perspective, I don't really have time".

According to the Hollywood trade, the Academy is booking as much of the cast as possible, though it hasn't been reported whether the Avengers castmembers in question would appear individually or as a group.

The Hollywood Reporter has the update on the Academy's plan to proceed without a host for the 2019 Oscars ceremony that will be broadcast on Sunday, February 24.
