Kevin Hart Says He Won’t Host the Oscars: ‘I Can’t Do It This Year’

Kevin Hart officially stated that he will not host the Oscars this year. The actor told “Good Morning America” co-host Michael Strahan that with the Oscars weeks away, it’s too late for him to change his mind. “Right now, from a time perspective, I don't have the time. You're talking about two weeks that I would really have to prepare," he said. Strahan pressed Hart about the controversial homophobic remarks from past years that led him to back out of the hosting gig. “I'm over it,” Hart said.
