Kevin Hart has made it clear that he will not host the Oscars. "I'm not saying I've changed anymore". An anonymous awards show and live events producer told the outlet: "The people who produce that show are hogtied by the Academy, who as a group are not willing to change very much".

He said: "I'm done with it". "If you keep feeding this energy, then it's going to grow".

But while it was a huge year for recognising cinematic classics - the lesson from the 1989 Oscars is that going hostless is a truly bad idea - and even an Anne Hathaway/James Franco hosted show is better than a rudderless Oscars ship.
