The 92nd Academy Awards may once again go without a host, according to ABC chief Karey Burke. 

Burke said while no decision has been taken yet, they are encouraged by the ratings increase this year.

 "We're extremely proud of how the show turned out creatively, Burke said Wednesday while talking about this year's ceremony. Asked wether Jimmy Kimmel, who recently signed a three year deal with ABC, might return for the third time as the host, Burke said,"I'm not saying no to anything."

"We're not messing with that format, to the best of our abilities, she said about the ceremony. The network has a deal to broadcast Academy Awards until 2028. The Oscars will take place on February 9 in 2020. 

Rami Malek against all odds bagged the Oscar for best actor at the 91st Academy Awards for his role as Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody and Olivia Colman won the best actress Oscar for essaying the role of Queen Anne in the movie The Favourite.

Malek defeated strong contenders including Bradley Cooper as musician Jack Maine in A Star Is Born and Christian Bale as Dick Cheney in Vice while Olivia had to face competition from Lady Gaga in 'A Star is Born; and Yalitza Aparicio in Roma.
