 With no host for the Oscars in 2019, we take a look back at the Academy Awards hosts over the past two decades. 91st Academy Awards will see no host for the first time in 30 years. This comes after the Academy's pick—Kevin Hart—became embroiled in controversy due to past homophobic tweets. This year Oscars will presumably rely more heavily on presenters this year.   (Image: Reuters)
