Kevin Hart is not ready to host the Oscars 2019. The academy will steer the show without any anchor.
Kevin Hart Will Not Host The Oscars
This December it has been announced that the popular comedian Kevin Hart will host the Oscar Awards 2019. Later, just after two days of the announcement, Hart withdrew this hosting opportunity. In fact, Hart said No-to hosting after receiving decade old revolting homophobic tweets.
Subsequently, the Academy demanded a public apology, but Hart became refractory. He logically debated that he had already apologized in the past.Still, the militants are posting online offensive strews on Twitter.
Why The Stand Up Comedian Will Not Host The Oscars
According to some valid sources, the Philadelphian comedian is no more in a mood to be the frontman on oscar’s podium. The actor has taken this resolution for two major reasons.
The first cause obviously is the 2009-2011 homophobic controversy. Hart eventually resigned from hosting after homophobic tweets swarmed against him. Although the Academy now seems inclined to give a green signal on his come back.
Another reason is the advanced calculation that made Kevin realize that he could not do justice with this exclusive hosting job. This is due to the lack of available time. He said he won’t have quality time to rehearse.
One of the Real Husbands of Hollywood, Kevin Hart cited his decision in the following words.
“I do not want to be a distraction on a night that should be celebrated by so many talented artists, I sincerely apologize to the LGBTQ community for my insensitive words from my past. […] My goal is to bring people together not tear us apart. Much love & appreciation to the Academy. I hope we can meet again.”
The Academy, however, has decided to continue the trend of NO-HOST at the Academy Awards night. In fact, the authorities will select some prestigious celebrities to present the awards.
DeGeneres, A Substantial Backing For Kevin’s Hosting
Recently, Kevin Hart’s appeared on Ellen for the promotion of his upcoming film The Upside. All praise to DeGeneres, who convinced Hat to return as a show host.— She also made calls to the Academy. Hart, however, was grateful to DeGeneres’ gesture
Consequently, the Ellen show turns into a referendum on Kevin Hart. The critics are now targetting both DeGeneres and Hart.
As a genuine well-wisher, DeGeneres persuaded Hart that these online scandals are nothing but a worthless effort to ruin Hart’s career.
Some considerable names to host the upcoming Oscar award ceremony perhaps are Rhea Butcher, Busy Philipps and Hunter Harris.
The 91st Academy Awards will air on Sunday, February 24th, 2019. ABC will telecast the live show at 8:00 pm Eastern.
