Kevin Hart lasted a little over 24 hours as the host of the 2019 Academy Awards ceremony. He withdrew today following backlash from the LGBTQ community and others. I think the Motion Picture Academy would avoid missteps like we saw this week if they would stop playing the ratings game. The Oscars ceremony will never attract the numbers it once had due to changes in the industry and the audience.

Why not hire a host who has actually made a significant contribution to American film and has intelligent things to say about it?

I haven't watched the award shows in many years. At one time the shows were glamorous and it was exciting to see who would win the awards. I agree with you, the host should be someone special in the industry. I hardly go to the movies any more.

Hi Angie,

Thanks for your post. If you rarely go to the movies anymore because you can't find something that interests you, check out the Drama Movies site. I've got ten featured reviews on the home page. The films I discuss range from edgy independents to inspiring dramas based on true-life stories. You might find a new favorite!

Update: Variety is reporting that there will be no host for the Oscar telecast. Producers will instead use a variety of celebs to introduce the show's segments. Apparently there will be no opening monologue or musical number ( not a bad idea from my perspective). The montages of classic films or filmmaker interviews are usually well-done, so I hope they go that route. The show airs on February 24th.

Update: The Academy has committed to a three-hour ceremony. With that in mind, yesterday, Academy president John Bailey announced the awards that would be presented during commercial breaks. They are cinematography, film editing, live action short, and makeup and hairstyling. I understand the live action short decision. I think they also should have included the animated short category, but cinematography? Without cinematographers, there are no movies. John Bailey is a cinematographer!! Bailey has tried to head off criticism by saying the categories not being televised each year will be selected on a rotating basis. Also, the entire show will stream live on Oscar.com.

Update: The Academy was forced to backtrack on its decision to award certain categories during the commercial breaks. The American Society of Cinematographers was instrumental in forcing the Academy to reconsider. This controversy is the topic of my latest article on the Drama Movies site. Read more here.
