Academy Awards 2020: Oscar Ceremony Without Host… Again!

The Academy Awards 2020 will be televised on Sunday, February 9 on ABC, several weeks earlier than usual. Conducted without a host, the Academy Awards ceremony did something that hadn’t done for three decades. Apparently this works.

Queen biopic BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY was the great champion in The Academy Awards 2019, taking home four Oscars, the most wins at the 91st Academy Awards.

The ABC network has announced that next month’s Academy Awards ceremony will be presented host-less as well.

Consequently, Kathy Burke, the network’s entertainment president, saying the following (via Deadline):

Together with the Academy, we have decided there will be no traditional host, repeating for us what worked last year.

[It will have] huge entertainment values, big musical numbers, comedy and star power.

ABC is willing to try the host-less experiment again and rely on various actors and talent to keep things flowing.

The Academy Awards 2020 nominations will be announced next Monday, January 13, though one just needs to look at the Golden Globe nominees and winners to get an idea of what’s among the best of the best from 2019.
