(Variety) — The 91st Annual Academy Awards will have no host since the organization appears to have given up on finding a star to take on the role.

According to a report fromVariety, the Academy Awards won’t feature a singular host for the first time since 1989.

There are only six weeks until the show takes place live from the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California. This looming deadline apparently has producers “scrambling” to find A-listers willing to take part in the star-studded show.

Their struggle to pull off the task come weeks after Kevin Hart was announced as the 2019 host, only to subsequently pull out of the show due to homophobic statements he had made previously resurfaced online.
