Last year ABC gave up on the idea of having one host for the entire Academy Awards ceremony, instead letting the actors handle things themselves. Was it a success? It must not have hurt, because ABC says the 2020 Oscars will be host-free as well. Is it too late to book Ricky Gervais?
The 2020 Oscars will have no host, per @abc

I'll take a host with no Oscars over well, The Oscars.

It will have no audience to watch either. Why don't they just celebrate and pat each other's backs behind closed doors.

Maybe Amazon Prime can deliver their awards directly to their houses!

They could really cut down on the carbon footprint by just emailing the winners.

Gervais left them dazed and confused: wandering the wilderness, never to be the same

@rickygervais should have a live show and stream it on the same night. Then they won’t have an audience either.
— Phillie (@Philipk007) January 8, 2020
Now that would be superb!! Come on @rickygervais make this happen please ???

The solution to being criticized is clearly to remove the ability to be criticized.

Ensuring that all those leftist soapboxes will not be thwarted this time. Removing the host doesn't make the speeches any less cringe.

It should not be televised at all.

Who watches that self-congratulatory self-centered narcissistic, over-indulgent inc8stuous love circle?
Its as far away from the real world as the next closest offworld alien species.

This makes no sense…parasites always need a host

The Oscars continue to get worse and worse anyway @abc
Hopefully people stop watching until the show becomes less about politics/culture and more about cinema again

Yeah hosts are the problem with the ratings. It isn't the political speeches or nominating films no one watches. This is going to fix everything. #Oscars2020
