"Burke stated organisers planned on" replicating what worked for us - enormous entertainment value, large musical numbers, large humour".

The Academy's official Twitter account also confirmed the news.

This year's Oscars will again be without a host, the Academy has said.

They originally had Kevin Hart scheduled to host the show before some old anti-LQBTQ remarks surfaced, leaving the award ceremony hostless. But after homophobic tweets the actor made began to resurface, the Academy let Hart go and chose to proceed without a host, leading to a relatively smooth ceremony.

According to Deadline, the association is looking to replicate the success of last year's show with several big-name celeb cameos to sprinkle between the award presentations.

In 2019, nearly 30 million people saw the Oscars on television, which was slightly up than the numbers it achieved in 2018.

Instead, stars such as Tina Fey, Amy Poehler and Maya Rudolph presented awards without an introduction from a host. This way the show will be able to shed more light over presenters and the winners as well. The ratings jump ended their constantly plummeting ratings which hit an all-time-low in 2018 with 26.54 million viewers. The rite is ready to happen on Sunday, February nine on ABC.

Comedian and actor Kevin Hart was announced as the host of the 2019 Oscars, but chose to leave at the last minute - after controversy over previous homophobic anecdotes.
