Kevin Hart on Hosting Oscars: 'I Can't Do It This Year'

After spending months looking for someone-anyone-who was willing to take on the thankless gig of hosting the biggest night in movies, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences selected Kevin Hart to host this year's Oscars. With that in mind, Hart was recently asked the question by Good Morning America's Michael Strahan, to which the comedian responded with a resounding no.

"I'm not going to continue to go back and tap into the days of old when I moved on, and I'm in a completely different space in my life", Hart said in a video on Instagram.

Hart and Cranston tried to be as authentic to the characters as they could, the actor said, adding that the film really dives into perceptions, considering the two men come from two very different backgrounds.

"I'm over it", he told Strahan. I shouldn't have to prove who I am, I shouldn't have to prove the levels of love that I am capable of giving. You don't want to turn into what you're fighting against.

The actor explained: "It gets no more energy from me. I'm literally, I'm over that, I'm over the moment".

After Philipps said that it would be "super lame" for there to be no host at all, Mandel expressed the issues he has with awards shows in general. "It's his choice as an American. then you can feel about it however you want".

In one of his 10-year-old tweets, Hart used a gay slur, and he also said he wouldn't want his son to be gay during an old stand-up routine.

'This year was just a tricky year, so maybe in the future it'll work out'. She said she'd called the Academy and been told they'd love to have him back, adding that to not take the job would let "the haters win".

Hart withdrew from the Oscars in December after receiving criticism for his past homophobic jokes.

Then last week, he spoke to Ellen DeGeneres in his first interview since stepping down, and she asked him to reconsider hosting the awards show.

In the most absurd sequence of events, the Academy allowed Ellen DeGeneres to insert herself into the breach, playing Oscar producer by publicly lobbying for Hart to be reinstated, and saying that organizers were open to the prospect.

'You can't change without a understanding of what GROWTH means'.

'I apologize. I am now moving on from this because I'm just hoping that the apology is accepted'.

Among the possibilities organizers were pondering was to go "SNL-style" with a rotation of presenters.
