Sunday evening promises to be a night of glamour and excitement as Hollywood's elite descends on Los Angeles for the 91st Academy Awards, or as everyone calls it, the Oscars. "Roma" and "The Favourite" are tied for the most nominations, while "A Star is Born" and "Vice" each received eight nods.

Oscars 2019 presenters

Even without a host, the Academy Awards has a star-studded lineup of presenters to announce nominees and winners on Sunday night. To present the nominees for best picture, the Academy has lined up Chef José Andrés, Dana Carvey, Queen Latifah, Congressman John Lewis, Diego Luna, Tom Morello, Mike Myers, Trevor Noah, Amandla Stenberg, Barbra Streisand and Serena Williams.
Other presenters include Awkwafina, Daniel Craig, Tina Fey, Whoopi Goldberg, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael B. Jordan, Michael Keaton, Helen Mirren, Tyler Perry and Maya Rudolph.

Oscars 2019 goes on without a host

For the first time in 30 years, the Academy Awards will be held without a host. Kevin Hart was originally asked to be the show's host but stepped down after homophobic comments he made 10 years ago resurfaced. Hart apologized for the remarks, saying he's grown as a comedian since then.

In an interview with Ellen DeGeneres earlier this year, Hart said, "Now all of a sudden it's a little darker because the conversation isn't about me hosting the Oscars. The conversation is about Kevin Hart's tweets from 10 years ago and homophobia. I don't wanna step on that stage and make that night about me and my past when you have people that have worked hard to step on that stage for the first time and receive an award."
