The Rock Reveals Why He Didn’t Host This Year’s Oscars

The Rock Reveals Why He Didn’t Host This Year’s Oscars”

After a Twitter user suggested that the people's champion would be the flawless host for the Hollywood awards shindig, Johnson responded by saying he was actually the first choice for the task but had to pass due to scheduling complications with the Jumanji sequel production.

Karey Burke, of ABC, said that the void left by the comedian Kevin Hart had given the ceremony an attractive air of mystery.

Reports had suggested the broadcaster was struggling to fill the role - one of the toughest in USA show business. "People really care. It's fascinating".

This year's Oscar ceremony will go ahead without an official host for only the second time in its history, an ABC television executive said on Tuesday.

I'd like to say Kevin Hart should call for a "truce" with The Rock... but that didn't work out so well for Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynolds.

Instead of replacing him, the Academy have made a decision to go ahead without a celebrity emcee for the first time in 30 years.

Burke's worries about the host-less February 24 ceremony have vanished as it comes together with a "phenomenal" line-up of presenters, she told a TV critics meeting. The Hollywood Reporter has described it as "the least wanted job in Hollywood".

Hart dropped out amid criticism over years-old homophobic tweets, for which he eventually apologized.

Numerous movies that made it to the nominations list did well at the Box Office.

The 2017 ceremony was rocked by the so-called "Envelopegate" scandal, in which La La Land was wrongly named best picture instead of the actual victor Moonlight. "Meet the 91st #Oscars #OscarsLunch", the Academy captioned the tweet. Therefore, who wouldn't want him as the host of their event?

"It was his 100th birthday", Crystal recalled in 2013. You could feel people getting restless. "Academy and I were super bummed but maybe one day down the road", he added.
