Kevin Hart definitively states: 'No, I'm not hosting the Oscars this year'

10 January 2019

However, there are only six weeks until the show takes place live from the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, Calif.

And now it is claimed that producers will have a list of A-list stars split the presenting duties instead of having a single replacement for Kevin. He stepped down as host and has since apologized for his comments, but some critics have found his contrition to be insufficient.

Speaking on "Good Morning America", he said: "No". Hart was given the entire show, which saw DeGeneres pleading with him to return as the Oscars host.

On Friday, he told talk show host Ellen DeGeneres he was "evaluating" whether he should reverse his decision.

The 39-year-old actor was scheduled to host the February 24 awards show but backed down after a series of anti-gay tweets - from between 2009 and 2011 - resurfaced and drew outrage from the LGBT community. "I hear everything you're saying, but I want everybody to know I'm done with it".

As rumoured, it appears this year's 91st Academy Awards will not have a host.

That doesn't mean he's shutting down the possibility of hosting the Oscars another year.

But, of course, there was still some time, right?

The impending 91st Annual Academy Awards won't break ground for implementing a brand-new dress code, introducing a never-before-featured category, or including a charm of hummingbirds flanking either side of the presentation stage, flittering delicately as each victor ascends the steps to claim their long-sought-after statues.

In one of his old Twitter posts, Hart had described an actor's picture as a "gay billboard for AIDS".
