The upcoming 91st Academy Awards will have no host this year-the first time in 30 years-according to a report.

Hart will not be returning to host the Oscars and has emphatically said so.

It's been nearly 30 years since that Oscars ceremony, and it's still considered the biggest disaster in the award show's history.

"I have made the choice to step down from hosting this year's Oscar's.this is because I do not want to be a distraction on a night that should be celebrated by so many incredible talented artists", he wrote on Twitter.

Sources told Variety that producers will select A-listers to introduce segments like the opening monologue and performances.

A few days after his old tweets went viral, Hart claims the Academy asked that he apologize.

Comedian and a former Oscars host Ellen Degeneres had Hart on her show and pleaded with him to reconsider, saying the Academy wanted him back.

Hart was originally tapped to host the Oscars in December. "It's a choice that I've personally made to say I'm not addressing it anymore". The last time it happened was in 1989, when it opened with an infamous musical number starring Rob Lowe and an actress playing Disney's Snow White.

The producers are reportedly looking to assemble as many cast members as possible from Marvel's Avengers for an Oscars reunion.

The Hollywood Reporter has the update on the Academy's plan to proceed without a host for the 2019 Oscars ceremony that will be broadcast on Sunday, February 24.
