The Oscars might go hostless in 2020 for the second year in a row, according to new ABC entertainment president Karey Burke.
Burke was responsible for the Oscars for the first time this year after joining the television giant and said she is â€œextremely happyâ€ with how this yearâ€™s telecast was received.
Ratings for the broadcast, which was set to be presented by Kevin Hart before a controversy over homophobic tweets, were up on the historic low of the 2018 ceremony.

The 52-year-old exec told The Hollywood Reporter she is open to the prospect of the Academy Awards continuing not to have a host for the 2020 ceremony.
She said: â€œWeâ€™re having those conversations with the Academy right now.
â€œWe are extremely happy with how the show went. Odds are youâ€™ll see us repeating what we consider to be a successful formula.â€
Burke said it was â€œunnervingâ€ to be in the middle of the controversies that raged in advance of this yearâ€™s Oscars ceremony, from Hartâ€™s removal as host to the short-lived decision to award prizes during advert breaks.
She added: â€œNever before have I had the illusion of so much responsibility and yet felt quite powerless.
â€œIf the Oscars can serve as a harbinger to how we approach things in my tenure here at ABC, I will be very happy.
â€œExpectations might be low but everybody here made bold choices, did risky things, had each otherâ€™s backs and pulled it off.â€
