2019 Oscars Awards to Remain Hostless

At the end of 2018, it seemed like Kevin Hart was going to be the host for the 2019 Oscars. Hart is a comedian that would have been able to make the audience laugh and have fun. However, he has rejected the job because of some controversy over homophobic comments he made in his past. Hart originally rejected the job in December of 2018, but in January 2019, Ellen DeGeneres tried to make him reconsider. Hart, however, said that he will not take the position because his comments from the past are continuing to circulate and mess with his career. He feels that his apologies should be enough for people to stop criticizing what he said. On Dec. 6, 2018 Hart tweeted this, “I have made the choice to step down from hosting this year’s Oscar’s….this is because I do not want to be a distraction on a night that should be celebrated by so many amazing talented artists. I sincerely apologize to the LGBTQ community for my insensitive words from my past”. The re-circulation of his past comments is the reason he passed on the job. He says that he is done trying to apologize and to get people to believe him. Although he is not going to be the host, he is very thankful for the opportunity. Since he will not be the host of the Oscars, there will be no official host. For the first time in thirty years, the Oscars will be host free. It will air on Feb. 24 and will consist of multiple celebrities being involved with the show. It is also said that The Avengers will also be making an appearance. With nobody leading the way, many people are wondering how entertaining the Oscars will be.
