Can the Avengers save the 2019 Oscars from Kevin Hart?

The show will also "focus on starry skits and play up a high-profile year for music in film, thanks to likely nominees 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.

But if the Academy is really out to distract us from the Kevin Hart thing and proceed without a host, I hope they really go for it, and make it an all-Avengers evening, with every presenter and announcer coming from the MCU. Ellen tried to encourage him to return, even calling the Academy to reinstate Hart.

The move came after Hart won and lost the hosting job last month within a 26-hour span as homophobic tweets from 2010 and 2011 resurfaced. "Right now from a time perspective, I don't really have time".

It resulted in one particular segment that featured Rob Lowe singing "Proud Mary" with Snow White (?!?!?!?!), and essentially ruined the career of the producer (Allan Carr - the guy who produced Grease) of the ceremony.

The 91st Academy Awards show is happening on February 24, 2019, at Hollywood's Dolby Theater.

However, on Wednesday, January 9, (Thursday, January 10, Philippine time), Hart made an appearance on NBC's Good Morning America and officially closed any doors on becoming the Oscars emcee this year.

According to the Hollywood trade, the Academy is booking as much of the cast as possible, though it hasn't been reported whether the Avengers castmembers in question would appear individually or as a group.
