Reportedly, The Oscars are all set to kick start the award show without a host this year. The team of 2019 Academy Awards is on a plan to recruit multiple celebrities to present different parts of the show instead of one solo artist taking hold of the whole show. Since there are only six weeks left until the show takes place, the producers of the remarkable award show are struggling to find A-list celebrities who are capable of running the starry night.
The news dropped in weeks after American actor-comedian Kevin Hart was announced as the host of the 2019 award ceremony only to take him out of it later. The actor stepped down from hosting Oscars after his tweets from 2009-2011 all having derogatory comments resurfaced. Hart, in his tweets, had made belittling comments about sexuality. Just after his "Homophobic" tweets started doing the rounds, the Academy, offered an ultimatum to Hart, asking him to issue an official statement apologizing for his remarks. The controversy surrounding him stammering gay in his past Twitter posts led Hart to step down as the emcee of Academy Awards 2019, after apologizing for his comments.
On his SiriusXM radio show, "Straight From the Hart", the comedian on Monday said that his words have been "chopped up" following earlier apologies. "Once again, Kevin Hart apologizes for his remarks that hurt members of the LGBTQ community. I apologize," he said. He later explained the all about the joke that led him in trouble.Hart quoted the joke, "I want to say that I have no problem with gay people. I don't have a homophobic bone in my body. I want you to be happy, be gay, be happy.'" "And then I say as a heterosexual male if I can do something to stop my son... That's where the joke starts!" he argued.
