The 91st Academy Awards which just six weeks away, producers are reportedly scrambling to find A-listers celebrities willing to take part in the star-studded show lined up for February 24.
This comes after Ellen DeGeneres revealed she spoke to the Academy about the possibility of Kevin Hart coming back to host the Oscars.
