'I'm over it': Kevin Hart on Oscars controversy, why he's not hosting the show

Don Lemon Responds To Kevin Hart Saying He Doesn't Want To Be An LGBT Ally

"I'm over that, I'm over the moment". It remains to be seen how that will come together, but Variety says this year's plans include key changes that will require less time from a host anyway, so the absence of one may not be as strongly felt. "It's hard to predict what can happen ... right now I don't have the time".

For the first time in nearly 30 years, the Oscars will air without a host, Variety has confirmed.

Kevin Hart is moving on from the Oscars controversy, whether people like it or not.

Later on "GMA", Hart opened up about his new movie, "The Upside" and how wonderful it was to work alongside Bryan Cranston, saying his co-star has simply perfected his craft. Hart's announcement that he was stepping down - in which he apologised and said he didn't want to be a distraction at the ceremony - came days after he was named the host of the Academy Awards, which take place on February 24. I'm not giving no more... Show producers are reportedly planning "a broadcast that will focus on starry skits and play up a high-profile year for music in film, thanks to likely nominees Lady Gaga, Dolly Parton, and Kendrick Lamar". "I might get a lot of blowback for that, but I'm just being honest". Every headline is 'He apologized.' I'm done.

The Academy is pressing forwarded without a host for this year's Oscars. Tuesday, the Philadelphia-born superstar took to his SiriusXM radio show Straight from the Hart to address the situation again. In his opinion, hosting the Oscars is the most "thankless job in our industry". I shouldn't have to prove who I am.

Speaking with Strahan Wednesday about potentially hosting the Oscars in the future, Hart said, "if it does [happen], it does, but it's not the conversation of today". "I had some real good jokes", Hart claimed.

"If you didn't [hear the apology]". Many also questioned Hart's framing of the initial backlash to his old tweets as a personal attack on his celebrity rather than a community demanding a respectful apology. "It's a choice that I've personally made to say I'm not addressing it anymore".

Hart eventually gave a definitive answer about whether he'll host the 2019 Oscars. "It's all they ever wanted him to do, and he's doing it in spades".
