The Oscars To Trudge Forth Without A Host

Plans could certainly change, especially if a huge star somehow materializes and wants the hosting gig, but Variety says the idea of Hart returning is "100% dead".

Last month, the 39-year-old comedian announced he would not be hosting the upcoming Academy Awards after facing controversy over resurfaced tweets from almost a decade ago which contained homophobic remarks and offensive slurs. The actor told "Good Morning America" co-host Michael Strahan that with the Oscars weeks away, it's too late for him to change his mind.

The host even went as far as calling the Academy herself to see if they would allow Hart to assume the position.

Strahan then made a point to highlight to Hart that it was obvious that he was purposefully diverting from answering his questions directly. "I'm literally, I'm over that, I'm over the moment".

Kevin Hart is "done" with the controversy over his historic homophobic tweets.

She admitted, "Now, I realize I may not be anybody's first choice", and added of her own polarizing persona, "I'm also problematic!"

"I would like to call myself a perfectionist, so when I do something I want to be able to give it my all".

Kevin Hart claims he's been trying hard to get back into the good graces of the LGBTQ community and took to the airwaves of his SiriusXM show "Straight from the Hart" this week to once again apologize for the homophobic jokes that landed him in big trouble. "I don't want people to think there's a thing about me and the Academy" - adding that he had no time to prepare.

"If you didn't [hear the apology]. I'm not addressing it anymore".

Hart, known for his stand-up comedy and roles in films including Ride Along, said he would not have enough time ahead of the February 24 ceremony in Los Angeles to prepare to do a professional job: "If I do something I want to give it my all". "You're not getting me".

The entire situation has been a little absurd as just hours after being announced as the host, Kevin Hart dropped out of the running.

"I'm a little upset because I know who I am". "That's why I said, for the last time, I'm addressing this". "Leaving here, I promise you I'm evaluating this conversation", he said on the show. "You're not getting no more of my energy from it".

"No. I'm not hosting the Oscars this year", he said. "I can't do that right now".
