Confirmation arrived by ABC that the 2020 Oscars will not have a host this time too. After all no one can neglect the fact that last year’s hostless broadcast was a super success.
This time also like the previous year; the Oscars are going to be held without any host. Earlier, the Academy had wonderful Kevin Hart for the head of the ceremony, but recently, he said no to it because of the controversy related to the comments he made earlier. Instead of searching for a replacement for Kevin Hart, the Academy decided to have an Oscars without a host. The first time host-less Oscars got introduced, this decision in a first glance it seemed as if it is going to be a wrong decision. But luckily, things went in the right direction unexpectedly.
As compared to the ratings of the year 2018, it has been observed that the ratings of 2019 were much better, so it seemed to conduct the ‘host-less’ Oscars formula is positive overall. Its reaction among the viewers was good. and for a few months, the word spread that the Oscars of 2020 once again is going to be host-less. Presently, ABC came forward and declared it officially.
Famous ABC president Karey Burke declared the planning done of the year 2020 show as well as he says that the hit of the last year Oscars is one of the primary reasons behind this decision that has been taken. Not only viewers but also critics were satisfied the broadcast turned out to be overall. The Academy Awards of the last year got successful majorly because of the fame of the excellent picture nominee such as ‘A Star is Born’ and the movie ‘Black Panther.’ The year 2020 is expecting fantastic movies like ‘Joker’ with ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.’
The work of the Oscar host is not given much importance as there is no ‘no-win’ type of condition provided for it in return for doing it to the host. Some time hosts are criticized for being too frank with the audience. Simultaneously many times, controversy also arises over there. Managing everything perfectly gets more and more difficult after entering it, which is a view shared by many former hosts. Some people who remember people like Bob Hope, as well as Billy Crystal, might don’t agree with it. The light is thrown on the films that are nominated over there on the day of the Oscars and not on the host, which is a matter of concern for many of those who get the opportunity for hosting.
