Oscars Will Go On Without Host for First Time in 30 Years

Oscars Will Go On Without Host for First Time in 30 Years

The 39-year-old stepped down as Oscars host after his homophobic tweets from eight years ago were unearthed.

He told the chat show host that he would reconsider his decision to back out from the Oscars, and apologised to the LGBT+ community earlier this week. "I don't want people to think there's a thing about me and the Academy" - adding that he had no time to prepare. Right now, from a time perspective, I don't have the time [to return as host]...

After a show of support from fellow comedienne Ellen Degeneres, rumors began to circulate if Kevin Hart would set aside his differences with the Academy and host the Oscars anyway.

Kevin Hart isn't running away from the homophobic tweet controversy, nor is he dodging CNN's Don Lemon.

On Monday, Hart took to his Sirius XM radio show to say he was sorry.

"As it stands, no new offers are out, nor are any expected to be made to a single potential host to fill the void left by Kevin Hart", reports Variety.

Gasiorowski said the fire probably broke out in the reception room and blocked the employee's way to evacuate the girls. Over the past few years, escape rooms have soared in popularity, with many expensive and complex options.

Strahan asked how Hart would respond to the people who take issue with the way that the comedian has apologized in the weeks following his removal as host. "I sincerely apologize to the LGBTQ community for my insensitive words from my past". "There's no more conversation about it". I'm over that, I'm over the moment, and I'm about today. If it's not, it's nothing I can control.

"I really had to dive into the whole thing - even the tweets", Hart said of the resurfaced past jokes. "So I'm done with it". I'm not going to continue to go back and tap into the days of old when I've moved on and I'm in a completely different space in my life.

Well, this will certainly be a year to at least check in on the Oscars.

"I feel like if you're not homophobic anymore, you shouldn't mind apologizing for your past homophobia again", one Twitter user wrote.

"I would want to make sure the production is a great representation of me and my talent". "I have nothing else to prove", he added.

"So then we say, 'Hey, man, as a group, let's erase this shit, '" he continued. If you don't want to accept people for their change, then where are you trying to get to the equal part? Probably not! It's 2019, and the Academy needs to get it through their heads that in our society of fractured entertainment options, the Oscars are never going to recapture the ratings they once had.
