New ABC Entertainment president Karey Burke confirmed Tuesday that the 2019 Academy Awards will be held without a host for the first time in decades.

Burke said the decision was taken after what she called "the messiness" over the Hart withdrawal and an attempt to revive his chances.

Burke's worries about the host-less February 24 ceremony have vanished as it comes together with a "phenomenal" line-up of presenters, she told a TV critics meeting.

"I have found that the lack of clarity around the Oscars has kept the Oscars in the conversation and that the mystery has been really compelling".

ABC President Karey Burke revealed during the network's TCA Winter Press Tour panel that Barris delivered a strong take, but it's still not quite there. "There was an idea that they were going to have the presenters just host the Oscars", Burke said. "We all got on board with that".

It's a pretty big question, which is why over the next three weeks we will be asking you to vote for your favorites as the top films battle it out to see which movie is actually the best picture ever.

She said the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which organizes the Oscars, had promised ABC last year to keep the telecast to three hours - about 30 minutes shorter than in recent years. However, she did tease that the opening number will be "exciting".

Burke addressed the fallout over Kevin Hart quickly exiting the hosting gig in December after old homophobic tweets resurfaced.

The decision arrives almost two months after original host Kevin Hart resigned for his past homophobic tweets. "I passed on the apology". "I have not spoken to [executive producers] Carlton [Cuse] or J.J".

"I would be less excited if they wanted to use the characters that we had in our show", he said. I've done it. I've done it!
