Oscars 2019: Higher ratings and after-party fun

Ratings for this year's Academy Awards were up on last year's record low, according to data released by US broadcaster ABC.

The broadcast averaged 29.6 million viewers - an 11% increase on last year's audience of 26.5 million.

Instead of using a host, the Academy had celebrities - among them Daniel Craig, Julia Roberts and Dame Helen Mirren - announce each category.

But don't get used to it, as a host may be back for next year's ceremony.

Oscars draw smallest US TV audience
Rob Mills, ABC's senior vice president said that while the show "works when it's host-less... a host will be in the conversation for next year".

"Imagine what would have happened if Envelopegate had happened this year and we didn't have a host?" he told Variety.

Mills was referring to the moment when La La Land was accidentally named best picture instead of Moonlight in 2017in 2017.

"It's hard to imagine that moment now without Jimmy, who was able to rein in the chaos" he added.
