Sources tell Deadline that the Oscars will not have hosts this year. The world continues to adjust to a new way of living and doing the things we once loved as we have experienced live events turning towards virtual productions.

This year the Oscars will not have any hosts and producers have made offers to talent in hopes that they will present the categories for the 93rd Academy Awards being held April 25 according to Deadline sources. The Academy producers Jesse Collins, Stacey Sher and Steven Soderbergh have been in serious preparations for their shifted programming due to the pandemic. It is said that producers were going to hold most of this year’s show in Union Station, because the downtown Los Angeles railway venue is spacious enough to socially distance the nominees and their families.

The Academy announced plans of filming safely prior to releasing the list of nominees. Deadline shared reports that Dolby theater will also be involved, and there is speculation Dolby will be sued for the show’s performances.

The Oscars have been making the necessary arrangements to have a safe and efficient show to honor the people and films of the year, but this virus and its’ protocols are unpredictable so plans may continue to change. The Academy announced that Glenn Weiss will return to direct the show this year, but no other statements on the show’s programming have been made.
