As of now, this year's Academy Awards are still without a host, which could be how the evening plays out. The Academy Awards have had a host for every awards show since 1990, but this year marks a significant change.
According to Variety, the Oscarswill take on a new format, with producers set to delegate the role of emcee to a selection of A-listers who will introduce various segments. Variety claims that the show will feature a number of "starry skits" and also focus on the music-focused movies of 2018 like A Star Is Born (Lady Gaga), Black Panther (Kendrick Lamar), and Dumplin (Dolly Parton). When Kevin Hart was finally handed the duties, old homophobic tweets by the comedian resurfaced and a significant social media backlash quickly forced him to resign. However in repeated interviews since the controversy Hart has repeatedly doubled down on his stance as the victim in the debacle and has refused to entertain any quiet suggestions that he use the experience as an opportunity. "But me, as a heterosexual male, if I can prevent my son from being gay, I will" (via Us Weekly).
Hart's "GMA" interview Wednesday capped off a roller coaster few weeks, which date back to when he was announced as the host for the Oscars on December 4.
"Stop looking for reasons to be negative..." I swear I wish you guys could see/feel/understand the mental place that I am in.
He said: "I'm done with it". "No desire to. I would never want to do it". I'm nearly 40 years old and I'm in love with the man that I am becoming. And within those ups and downs you learn, you educate and you grow and you move forward. I love to love. Please.... What's understood should never have to be said. If you don't see that, then that means that's a problem with you... "Have a lovely day". "I can't do that right now", Hart continued. I'm a good person. "I know that within my apologies I've taken 10 years to put my apology to work". My goal is to bring people together not tear us apart.
There was a glimmer of hope when Hart sat down for an interview with talk show host Ellen DeGeneres.
Kevin Hart is "done" with the controversy over his historic homophobic tweets.
"For the first time in almost three decades, the biggest night in movies plans to go without a host, individuals with knowledge of the plans told Variety", the publication said. I know that I've apologized ... "I have nothing else to prove or do". "I'm not that guy".
Hart had already apologized for the jokes, but said he would not continue to apologize for them. Whatever we can do we would be thrilled.
