There have been a few bumps in the road leading up to the 2019 Academy Awards, but Disney CEO Bob Iger shared a positive outlook on the red carpet.

“I’d say it’s been a rollercoaster ride getting here, but in the end it is the Oscars, and I think there’s a great group of nominees across the board today. I think its gonna make for a very interesting exciting and impactful show,” he told Variety’s Marc Malkin.

As to whether he felt nervous about the lack of a host, Iger said, “No. Not nervous at all. I think it’s gonna add a level of excitement meaning that… we don’t know what’s gonna happen. I also think it’ll be a little more, shall we say, economical in terms of time.”
