Superstar comedian, Kevin Hart has explained why he will no longer host the Oscars.
The comedian who stated that he’s fine doing standup in packed arenas and stadiums, stated that a theater full of A-listers is a tough room for comedians.
Kevin Hart told Sky News that the Oscars got it right one year, which is in 2019, the year he backed out, by using a bunch of personalities to cohost the ceremony throughout the evening. They haven’t gone back to that formula.
He admitted he would have an advantage hosting award shows because he has so many established relationships with the guests.
Hart was initially named as the host for the 2019 Oscars. Ahead of the ceremony, previous homophobic tweets surfaced and sparked controversy. The posts have since been deleted from X. Following the backlash, the actor stepped down from his hosting duties.
