According to the video,
Ellen has admitted to making a few phone calls for Kevin Hart to get re-hired to host the Oscars. However, the reason for Kevin Hart stepping down from the opportunity is because of his old homophobic tweets which resurfaced and caused a lot of backlash. Ellen claims the Oscars is open to the request:
“’We want him to host, whatever we can do, we’d be thrilled,’” DeGeneres said the Academy told her. “The Academy is saying, ‘What can we do to make this happen.’”
Do you think it’s going to happen?
