Breaking news! In a blatant bid to distract everyone from the problematic initial host who still refuses to go away, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) has announced it plans to assemble the Avengers on the stage of the Dolby Theater for the 91 Academy Awards next month. Hart dropped out within hours of being selected, when he refused to apologise for his past homophobic remarks that emerged on Twitter just after his selection.
According to the site, the Academy has decided that it won't have a traditional host, but will instead rely on a rotating cast of stars to introduce the various segments and is keen to bring in as many members of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as possible.
The show producers are trying to move forward with a broadcast that will focus on starry skits and play a high-profile year for music in films, owing to the nominations of singers like Lady Gaga, Dolly Parton and Kendrick Lamar.
After almost 3 decades, the Oscars producers have decided that the show must go on, even without a host.

Kevin Hart's jokes always manage to crack us up. Ellen tried to encourage him to return, even calling the Academy to reinstate Hart. 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 Oscars may be getting some superpower in lieu of a famous comedian to host it.
