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.

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".
