Who is Hosting the 2019 Oscars Ceremony?

What Channels are the Oscars on

This news may surprise you but according to the reports, this year’s ceremony will be unlike any other as there won’t be one single host.

Instead, it has been reported that event organisers will enlist a number of well known faces to present parts of the show.

Kevin Hart was initially announced as the show’s host in early December, though he dropped out following online backlash against years-old homophobic tweets.

“I have made the choice to step down from hosting this year’s Oscars,” he said in a post on Twitter.

“This is because I do not want to be a distraction on a night that should be celebrated by so many amazing talented artists. I sincerely apologize to the LGBTQ community for my insensitive words from my past.

“I’m sorry that I hurt people. I am evolving and want to continue to do so. My goal is to bring people together not tear us apart. Much love and appreciation to the Academy. I hope we can meet again.”

2019 Oscars Nominee Predictions

Bohemian Rhapsody took home the Best Motion Picture award at this year’s Golden Globes though it faces some stiff competition from A Star Is Born and Roma to name just a couple.

Glenn Close took home the Golden Globes Best Actress for a drama award for her role in The Wife while Olivia Colman won the same award for a comedy role. Lady Gaga is also in the running for her performance in A Star Is Born.

Rami Malek scooped the best actor award for his depiction of Freddie Mercury but he’ll have to fight off stiff competition for the gong.

Regina King took home the award at the Globes but she’ll have to beat out the likes of Emma Stone, Rachel Weisz and Claire Foy to take home that prize.

Mahershala Ali got his hands on the Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor but fans will have to wait and see who wins the award at the Oscars.

What Channel are The Oscars on?

The event is available on the ABC channel. It is expected that 91st Academy Awards will be ahead of the previous events in terms of television coverage. ABC is going to cover the program through multiple channels. If you are inside America, you can always rely on the ABC cable, and satellite to watch the night award. This is available on the television. You must subscribe for cable or satellite service before you can watch it in ABC channels and through their partner channels.

ABC is providing interesting and affordable channels for fans all over the country to watch the event holding Los Angeles live. Some of the channels are geo restricted. If one channel is not available in your area, another channel will be available. They have agreements with multiple partners within the country and out of the country.

The Guestlist

Roma and The Favourite lead the Oscar nominations with 10 nods each, so you can expect to see the likes of Olivia Colman, Emma Stone, Rachel Weisz and Yalitza Aparicio gracing the red carpet. A Star is Born has been nominated several times, meaning we’ll have Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga (hopefully in a scene-stealing gown) in attendance, as well as the likes of Glenn Close, Amy Adams, Melissa McCarthy and Regina King, who have all also been recognised by the academy this year.

Be ready for the 2019 Oscars ceremony on February 24.
