Kevin Hart was originally supposed to host the ceremony but the comedian stepped down from the role following controversial old tweets that expressed anti-gay sentiments and used homophobic terminology and slurs.
Many recent awards shows have chosen to follow the hostless format including the Emmy Awards on Fox. However, the 2020 Golden Globes did have comedian Ricky Gervais returning to the stage for the fifth time and Alicia Keys will return to host the 2020 Grammys.
The 92nd Academy Awards will be held on Sunday, Feb. 9 on ABC.
