Academy Retreats on ‘Popular’ Oscar Category for Now

Oscar Nominations 2019: See the Complete List

Though not quite as entertaining as last year's Oscar nominations announcement, when Tiffany Haddish delightfully bungled several names, this year's big reveal was still full of plenty of surprises. On Tuesday morning, Kumail Nanjiani and Tracee Ellis Ross announced the nominees in each of the award show's 24 categories, ending with the shortlists for the night's biggest trophies: Best Actor, Best Actress, and Best Picture.

For the first time since 1989, the Oscars won't have an official host. Instead, the Academy will likely call on its long list of celebrity members to take turns hopping on stage to banter with each other, introduce each category, and present awards. The decision to go host-less came after homophobic tweets written by the initially appointed emcee, Kevin Hart, resurfaced, and Hart subsequently failed to offer up a satisfying apology. Without a host to move things along and carry out harebrained segments between award presentations, not only will this year's Oscars be a night to remember, but there's also a good chance that, for once, they won't stretch past their allotted time slot.

The 91st Academy Awards are set to air live from Los Angeles on February 24, 2019, on ABC. See the list of Oscar nominations, below, as they are updated live.
