There is less than a month to go before the 2019 Academy Awards, and instead of talking about movies and performances, we're all stupid who won't be hosted. The Academy marked comedian Kevin Hart as host, but he backed some controversial tweets came to light. The Oscar's in 2019 break the tradition in another surprising way, but it's one you may not have known about so far.
Why no one will host the Oscar in 2019
Oscar producers could have encrypted to find a host to replace Kevin Hart, but they seemed more content to leave busy. It may not be a good idea.
When the 1989 Academy Awards had not been, it was nothing short of a disaster. The show opened with a terrible song with Rob Lowe and Snow White, and it just got worse from there.
We are surprised Hart agreed to host for the first time. It takes a lot of planning and practice to host the show, and eventually the hosts make nearly five figures for their efforts.
Without hosting the show, one plans to see different celebrities introducing segments throughout the night.
On the other hand, the 201 Oscar breaks from tradition
So we know that the Academy Awards will not host, but 2019 Oscars breaks another tradition. The 2018 Winners in the Play Categories – Gary Oldman and Frances McDormand for Best Actor and Actress, and Sam Rockwell and Allison Janney for their Supporting Roles – will not present the 2019 winners of these awards.
The Oscar usually has the last year's winner of every play category that presents the current price in the opposite category. So Oldman, 2018's best actor, would present the best actress statue at 2019 Oscars. None of these four are officially announced as presenters, according to Variety. It may change at the end, but the closer to the exhibition date, the less likely they will be on stage.
Snubbing the 2018-acting winners may not be among the most shocking Oscars moments all the time, but it's not far away.
Allison Janney's reaction is exactly what you would expect
When she found out that she might not be present at Oscars 2019, she did not hesitate to let the academy know what she thought about the decision.
"It looks like they won't honor the tradition this year," she wrote in a page-deleted Instagram post, according to Vanity Fair. "It breaks my heart."
Honestly, we don't owe Janney for her answer. Most actresses dream of raising an almost worthless Oscar statue, and for the Academy to revoke that tradition, we will also be disturbed.
Which movie will win the best picture?
Before we reveal the Oscar odds for the best shot, we have to mention one thing – you can't legally bet on the Academy Awards in Las Vegas.
"They have a thing where they are very cautious," Benjamin Eckstein, the creator
andauthor of America's Line, A.V. Club. "Nevada Gaming Commission does not allow bets or bets on events for which the results are already known. PricewaterhouseCoopers, the people who come out every time with the briefcase, know the results. Not that it ever leaked but it could. If it did, , it could be a real black eye. "
But you can place a bet online with any of a dozen or more game sites. A movie has the best Oscar odds for best picture.
Roma remains the odds-on favorite to win, just as it was before the premium season kicked to high gear. It is Alfonso Cuaron's semi-autobiographical drama shot in black and white, and it is Netflix's first best picture candidate. That means you can see it at home anytime, provided you have a Netflix account.
