Oscars Will Go Without a Host for First Time in 30 Years

This year's Academy Awards ceremony has had a very difficult time locking down a host and, just when it seemed like they had one last month in Kevin Hart, that rug was quickly ripped out from underneath when old remarks by the comedian that were anti-LGBTQ resurfaced.

While some feel going hostless may be a risky, if not outright bad idea, media consultant Brad Adgate had this to say on the matter.

Even with the no-host format, which the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has yet to comment on officially, they're reportedly "scrambling" to lock down talent needed to put the show together.

Just the other night Chris Rock took himself out of the running at the New York Film Critics Circle Awards dinner.

One of the biggest issues that needs to be resolved, not just this year but moving forward, is that hosting the Oscars has largely become a thankless job.

Any A-lister who would be considered big enough to draw in viewers doesn't have much to gain, save for a little bit of cash, from hosting Hollywood's biggest night .
