Oscars cutting 4 awards from broadcast

February 12, 2019
In an effort to ensure a show lasting under three hours, The Academy has decided to cut 4 categories from the live broadcast. • Cinematography • Editing • Live-action short • Makeup & Hairstyling The awards for the above categories will be presented during commercial breaks. The acceptance speeches, however, will air later in the show. The 91st annual award show is also going to skipping out on a host this year (making this only the second one with no host) after the originally selected host, Kevin Host, backed out following The Academy asking him to apologize for a decade-old Tweets he had already apologized for in the past. Here is the current list of presenters for the February 24th show:

 Awkwafina • Daniel Craig • Chris Evans • Tina Fey • Allison Janney • Brie Larson • Jennifer Lopez • Frances McDormand • Gary Oldman • Amy Poehler • Sam Rockwell • Maya Rudolph • Amandla Stenberg • Charlize Theron • Tessa Thompson • Constance Wu • Javier Bardem • Angela Bassett • Chadwick Boseman •Emilia Clarke • Laura Dern • Samuel L.
