Hollywood stars get ready for the Oscars

There was no host for the 91st Academy Awards this year, but Tina Fey, Amy Poehler and Maya Rudolph nearly made us forget.

And their jokes about the hostless evening should really have been stretched to a full monologue. "We are not your hosts, but we're going to stand here a little too long so the people who got USA TODAY tomorrow will think we hosted", she said to laughs from the audience.

"Welcome to the one millionth Academy Awards", Fey said.

After Adam Lambert and the original band members of Queen kicked off the show with a rock-heavy medley, the trio of comedians welcomed the crowd to the ceremony, insisting again and again they were not the hosts. They should also be the stars and writers of a three amigos reboot and anything else they want to do forever.

The extension is for eight years and carries an average annual value of $9 million, according to a TSN report. He's scored over 20 goals in each season since becoming an National Hockey League regular in 2014-15.

The SNL vets belted out a few lines from "Shallow" while gearing up to present the first award of the night, Best Supporting Actress (which Regina King won for If Beale Street Could Talk).

Yep, we're campaigning for an Amy/Tina/Maya hosting triad for 2020.

You might've heard that after much Kevin Hart-related controversy, the Oscars opted to go host-less this year.
