Oscars ceremony may go hostless again in 2020, says ABC

The 2020 Oscars ceremony honoring excellence in film may not have a host, ABC said Tuesday.

This year's gala went on without an emcee after comedian Kevin Hart bowed out of the gig, following the backlash he received when years-old, homophobic tweets resurfaced.

If the network has its way, there might not be a host at next year's event either.

"We're extremely proud of how the show turned out creatively and how well it performed this year, so I think we will see us not messing with that formula to the best of our abilities," Karey Burke, ABC's president of entertainment, said at Disney's Upfront Presentation.

Whether or not the star-studded show has a host also depends on the vision of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences -- which presents the prizes -- as well as what movies gain traction throughout the awards season.

"That starts to lead the creative thinking about what kind of telecast the academy wants to put on in partnership with us. So, they really are conversations that continue to evolve over the course of the year," Burke said. "But, right now, we are unbelievably happy with the results from this year, so I think you'll see, hopefully, we will have that same kind of success and that same kind of approach to the show this year."

Burke isn't completely ruling out the possibility of a return from 2018 host Jimmy Kimmel, star of the network's late-night chat show, Jimmy Kimmel Live.

"It's not something the academy makes decisions about until later in the year," Burke said.

Jimmy Kimmel signs new, 3-year contract with ABC

Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel has signed a new, three-year contract with ABC.

The network confirmed in a press release Tuesday the 51-year-old television personality will host and executive produce Jimmy Kimmel Live! through its 20th season.

Kimmel is in his 17th season of Jimmy Kimmel Live! He has racked up over 10 billion views and 14 million subscribers on YouTube since the show premiered in 2003, and has hosted the Oscars twice, as well as the Primetime Emmys.

Kimmel recently launched his own production company, Kimmelot Productions, and will host and executive produce ABC's upcoming tribute to All in the Family and The Jeffersons. The special airs May 22.

Deadline said keeping Kimmel has been a priority for ABC. Kimmel discussed his future in late-night during an interview on Conan O'Brien's podcast, Conan O'Brien Needs a Friend, this month.

"The thing that scares me [about ending Jimmy Kimmel Live!] is I don't know how I'll feel when I stop doing it," the star told O'Brien.

"I could see myself going, 'Okay, that's it, I'm done,' and then going home and saying, 'What did I do?'" he elaborated. "That scares me. There's that 'what if.' What if I stop doing and then I just don't know what to do with myself?"

Which rock star surprised drum prodigy Yoyoka Soma on 'Ellen'?

Foo Fighters frontman and former Nirvana member Dave Grohl delivered a special message for 9-year-old drum prodigy Yoyoka Soma on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Soma, who hails from Japan, performed on Tuesday "The Pretender" by the Foo Fighters on drums and spoke with DeGeneres through a translator.

Soma explained that Grohl was her favorite drummer because she loves his sound and thinks that he has a really heavy groove.

Soma, following her performance, was presented with a video message from Grohl where he complimented the young drummer.

"I've seen you play 'The Pretender' before and you're amazing so keep it up because the world needs more drummers," Grohl said.

Soma previously appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in February where she performed "Stone Cold Crazy" by Queen.
