Kevin Hart on Oscars: 'I'm done, I'm over it'

The Oscars will have no host US media reports

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.

As Variety reports, the ceremony will be kicked off by "one marquee name" who will deliver "a monologue filled with Trump zingers".

"I have explained how I've evolved, which makes me say I'm over it". You want me to be the face of this community because of this joke?

Hart dropped out of the annual award show in December after homophobic tweets he had shared years in the past re-emerged.

It has come to this: The Academy Awards are reportedly moving forward without a host for the February 24 telecast, which is some six weeks away.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences had been considering allowing Hart to come back if he apologised for his actions during a sit-down with his friend, talkshow host Ellen DeGeneres.

Kevin Hart has appeared to put an end to the rumors circulating over the past week that he would be returning to host the Oscars.

Last Friday, Hart shared his frustration with the situation during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

On Monday, Hart took to his Sirius XM radio show to say he was sorry. You've already expressed that it's not being educated on the subject, not realizing how risky those words are, not realizing how many kids are killed for being gay or beaten up every day ...

"The reason I was going to host the Oscars was to take the tension out of the room.everybody is uptight". You've done it. Don't let those people win. He told Variety, "The moment came and it was a blessing and I was excited at the opportunity and I still am".

The debacle on the Academy's hands is one entirely of their own making, shot through by their sycophantic love affair with all things left-of-center and politically correct. "It's not in God's plan right now". "I sincerely apologize to the LGBTQ community for my insensitive words from my past", said Hart.

He had only been announced as host of the 91st Academy Awards Ceremony at Hollywood's Dolby Theatre three days before.

In 2018, Oscars ratings' dropped almost 19 percent year over year to a paltry 26.5 million viewers - marking it the lowest-rated Oscars show in 44 years.

"I have an understanding that I've addressed it and I've said everything that I can possibly say".
