Oscars Will Have No Host

The US comedian and actor pulled out of hosting the award ceremony in December amid controversy over homophobic tweets he posted nearly a decade ago.

"I will say this, and I want to make this very clear". He adds: "I'm riding with you guys".

However, he has now ruled that out, telling Good Morning America he doesn't have time.

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.

According to Variety, the award show's producers want several high-profile actors and actresses - who have yet to be determined - to introduce one or more segments throughout the award show, rather than a host keep the ceremony moving along for its entire duration.

Last Friday, Ellen gave Hart an opportunity to explain his side of the story, which then caused the daytime host to catch backlash herself for supporting his possible return. Every headline is 'He apologized.' I'm done.

Worse still, members of the Academy apparently have no contrition for how they handled the Kevin Hart fiasco. "You've done it. Don't let those people win - host the Oscars". While this situation is still fluid and he could possibly change his mind, this looks like his final answer, I'm told. You should host the Oscars. For instance, LGBTQ advocate and journalist Don Lemon criticized Hart's appearance on Ellen and said he believes the actor can use his celebrity to be a voice of change against homophobia. Some things are left out of your hands, so I'm done with it. I put out good energy. "It's not in God's plan right now".

He had only been announced as host of the 91st Academy Awards Ceremony at Hollywood's Dolby Theatre three days before. "It's a choice that I personally made to say, 'I'm not addressing it anymore.' That's not from an angry place". And I'm going to say it just in case you guys try to take this sh*t and chop it up, I will rebuttal with this f*cking piece right here. "There's a lot of eyeballs on it, so everybody is going to have an opinion", "Family Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane recently told USA Today about the PC police going after Oscar hosts.
