Kevin Hart says he won't be hosting 2019 Academy Awards

Kevin Hart is moving on from the Oscars controversy, whether people like it or not. "I've done all that I can do".

"I have explained how I've evolved, which makes me say I'm over it".

"I'm not saying how I've changed anymore, I'm not saying what I've done and what the new me is".

Unfortunately it did not go well for Hart. "Here's what I'm trying to say - I'm over it", he declared. "That's what I'm trying to say". I'm done with it. "The moment came and it was a blessing and I was excited at the opportunity and I still am". It gets no more energy from me. I'm not going to continue to go back and tap into the days of old when I've moved on and I'm in a completely different space in my life. I aspire, I motivate. "I had some real good jokes". I'm nearly 40 years old and I'm in love with the man that I am becoming. And if that's received, then great, then it means we've achieved something. "I have nothing else to prove or do". The talk show host and fellow comedian urged him to reconsider hosting the Oscars (he was sacked from his hosting gig after his tweets were publicized) and praised him for his overall career success. No one wants to be put under the microscope the way Hart was.

Michael Jackson Sexual Abuse Documentary Added to Sundance Lineup
The estate continued on to say the, "so-called documentary is just another rehash of dated and discredited allegations". The 2019 Sundance Film Festival begins January 24th and runs through February 3rd.

Do you think they'll be able to pull it off? I swear I wish you guys could see/feel/understand the mental place that I am in. However, Hart said in that interview and subsequent ones that he would not take on the job of Oscars host.

The virus of political correctness and woke sermonizing that has wormed its way into the Academy Awards for the past decade has all but turned Hollywood's most prestigious awards show into a level of laughingstock that not even the Golden Globes has stooped to.

"I'm over it", he told Strahan. So you have to come to a point where you know that you've given all that you possibly can. DeGeneres, herself a two-time Oscars host, argued that, "They are a small group of people who are very, very loud".

"Right now, from a time perspective, I don't have the time". You're talking about two weeks I'd have to prepare. "I can't do that right now". "Steve Martin should host the Oscars!". By Friday afternoon, Hart had told Variety that it wasn't going to happen.
