Oscar Hosts

Read a bio on Ellen DeGeneres, the host of the 86th Academy Awards, as well as past Oscar hosts. Do you remember who hosted in 1989? No one. That was the year the Oscars had no host, in an attempt to see how the telecast would go without one. The dates below represent the year in which the Oscar awards were telecast.
