“With the Academy, we’ve determined there will be no traditional host, replicating for us what worked last year. [It will have] huge entertainment values, large musical numbers, comedy, and star power,” said Burke.
The 2019 Academy Awards went host-less after Kevin Hart’s withdrawal as a result of controversial tweets produced by the comedian and actor. The move proved successful for the broadcast, which was filled with big-star presenters, large moments — such as a Queen medley and Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s performance of”Shallow” — and the vital inclusion of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler in keeping the event running smoothly and with plenty of entertainment in between the award announcements.
The 2019 award show had a 12% increase in viewers as well as 13 percent in the adults 18-49 demo over the 2018 Oscars and was also shorter than its previous year by about thirty minutes.

The Academy Awards will take place at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on ABC on February 9.
