The Oscars will be host-free

Speculations have run quite wild since Kevin Hart formally declined the job of hosting the 91st Annual Academy Awards following controversial tweets and apologies.

While the internet fielded likely replacements with Ken Jeong topping the list, Variety reported early January that the Academy had decided that the Oscars would be host-free this year.

The internet has a convincing theory

This is the first time the Academy is going without a host in 30 years. People believe it is simply impossible to pull off the hours-long show host-free. And there's a new theory gaining ground that they are only playing along to heighten the suspense

Why? The funny woman who co-hosts The View has been absent for a while with claims that she is unwell.

Is Whoopi Golberg really unwell?

Frankly, it's not the most outrageous Oscar 2019 theory out there and it's not that hard to believe. Goldberg was the first woman to host the Oscars alone in 1994 and has done the job 4 times in total with critical success.

But her co-host Joy Baher is shutting down the rumors with claims that Whoopi Goldberg is simply recovering from pneumonia. Well, we hope she gets better.
