NEW YORK (AP) — Prodded by Ellen DeGeneres, comic Kevin Hart says he'll reconsider his decision to step down as host of the Academy Awards.
Hart had backed away two days after being named host last month when some homophobic tweets he had made a decade ago resurfaced. But DeGeneres urged him to host the show during an interview that aired Friday on her talk show.
The motion picture Academy has not named a replacement host for its Feb. 24 awards show.
Wanted: a host for the sixth annual Newby awards.
Yes, we're in a bit of a bind, though nothing like the good folks at the Academy Awards.
You see, we never even got to the point where Kevin Hart accepted the honor, then had to withdraw because people capable of working the screengrab function pointed out that he's posted some terrible things about gay people.
