Kevin Hart Reconsidering 2019 Oscars Host Gig

Actor Kevin Hart and TV personality  actress Ellen De Generes attend the People's Choice Awards 2017 at Microsoft Theater

Last month, Hart stepped away from hosting the 91st annual Academy Awards ceremony after being accused of homophobia over years-old comments for which he had already publicly apologized.

Degeneres told Hart in a clip of her talk-variety show airing Friday. While I don't think Hart's enthusiasm for making a dream of his come true is misplaced, I do think it's a bit folly to go into the Oscars thinking everyone's going to be looking to the host. This is stuff I've addressed, I've talked about this.

The comedienne then called the Academy and asked them if they would take Hart back, to which they apparently said yes.

On Twitter, Hart apologised to the LGBTQ community for what he called "my insensitive words from my past".

"This is to damage the lives that have been invested in me", he asserted. "Because that was wrong".

Hart said he would think about it, responding, "It's tough for me because it was an attack, a malicious attack on my character, to end me".

DeGeneres said she'd like him to host the Oscars so much that she called the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and advocated for him. I believe in second chances.

The motion picture Academy has not named a replacement host for its February 24 awards show. Hart's words were homophobic but targeted specifically at Black LGBTQ people, especially Black gay men. Hostin added. "When is a person allowed to become an ally?"

It's a move that suits all parties as Liverpool are happy for him to get Premier League experience and Palace get a bright young forward for the rest of the season.

Why did Kevin Hart step down from hosting the Oscars?

"I personally thought his apology after ... all this broke was sort of a non-apology apology", Huntsman said. The star allegedly said to Ellen that people were out to ruin him. "I am evolving and want to continue to do so".

Hart described having to address the tweets at press events over the years, including as recently as 2015 while promoting the film Get Hard with Will Ferrell. "Either I can move forward, or I can't".

Adding that she's never one to buy into "mob mentalities" herself, McCain said that, for her, "Kevin Hart's apology hasn't really come up to snuff yet".

The US comedian and actor pulled out of hosting the awards in December, amid controversy over homophobic tweets he posted nearly a decade ago.

Capping a swift and dramatic fallout, Hart announced in December, merely two days after being hired for the job, that he was stepping down as Oscars host because he didn't want to be a distraction.

"I understand why people would be upset which is why I made the choice to not use them anymore, because that was wrong", he said. Is that how it works now in Hollywood - you have a career in comedy, where you sometimes offend people, and you have a "right" to host the industry's most prominent awards show?
