    There’s always the option of apologizing and making it clear to everyone in no uncertain terms that the person you used to be is not who you are today. Hart didn’t even try to look like he’s remorseful or has evolved.

    Well, he did apologize a few years back. He just didn’t feel the need to do it again. But I don’t think that would have made a difference. Celebrities have apologized for past things they have done or said, but their careers have ended. I don’t think Hart’s career is over, though.

    I don’t know why it has to be a comedian.

    Back in the seventies they’d sometimes just gather like 4 or 5 actors and have them introduce people. Jane Fonda, Jack Lemmon, Diana Ross, people like that who I don’t think did any comedy stuff.

    That would be perfectly fine too. I’d pick Oprah or Tom Hanks, personally.

    He did not apologize a few years back. He simply said he wouldn’t tell those jokes again because the times are more sensitive now.

    Also, the producers of the Oscars gave him the option to apologize. He would have kept the job had he done so. How hard would it have been to say “I’m sorry” if he actually meant it? He said hosting the Oscars is his lifelong dream – but apparently saying he’s sorry for being a homophobe is so overwhelmingly hard he would rather give up that dream.

    The Oscars should stay away from politics. Oprah hosting makes it just another liberal awards show. They want to attract a bigger audience and yet, they keep making stupid decisions.

    A weird choice came to my mind. Steve Carell is a Globes type, but he could do a decent work.

    Tom Hanks is overrated as heck and Oprah I want to run for President, not host the Oscars. She’s too big for them in my book.

    America is mostly center-left according to most political polls I have seen, so if anything having a liberal do the hosting gig would increase ratings, not hurt them. Look at how the ratings haven’t been great with the politically safe Jimmy Kimmel hosting. Part of the reason I was open to but overall disappointed by the decision to have Kevin Hart host is that he seemed too safe and harmless a pick. How ironic that so soon the exact opposite would turn out to be true.

    Note to myself: Don’t ever feed the trolls. Don’t get involved in others drama. Don’t let myself be swayed by others predictions, trust my gut more often!

    Note to all others: If you don’t happen to like me, ignore me. It is that simple.

    yea i mean if he really did feel badly for saying something insensitive then he would have removed the tweets after his first botched attempt at an apology , him leaving them simply shows that not only does he not apologize in any sense but he doesn’t care …

    The Oscars can’t be completely apolitical, for starters. I don’t think she would do a “monologue” in the sense of how comedians would do anyways. If Oprah’s a lightning rod for the right, I don’t care. She’s had 25 years of experience as a host. If Ellen can do it, Oprah most certainly can as well.

    My choice for the hosting gig this year is a joint effort by Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart. They have amazing chemistry together and they are widely respected by audiences of all ages across the globe in addition to both of them being highly respected and honored for their work. Plus this duo slows The Academy to express its disapproval of (Hart’s) homophobia as explicitly as it can.

    Tom Hanks would be a great pick actually. He is funny, everyone loves him, and honestly a genuinely nice guy (I never have seen him a scandal at all).

    I still cannot understand why they don’t ask Key and Peele (maybe they did and they declined, I guess). He was there last year. It satisfies their CLEAR preference for a non-white-guy host (which is a good preference to have). And it would be a good thing – in my mind – to have two people who can banter (assuming one of those two people is never ever ever James Franco).
