Hart lost his Oscars hosting gig after years-old homophobic tweets emerged. Now, the Academy is once again left scrambling for a replacement host, and it'll have to make a decision soon: the ceremony takes place February 24th at 8:00 p.m. ET. Variety goes on to note that, barring some last-minute change in plans by the Academy in which a superstar host gets secured after all, next month's return of the yearly awards ceremony is going to feel instead a little like a variety show.

"The reason I was going to host the Oscars was to take the tension out of the room.everybody is uptight".

According to Variety, the Oscars will take on a new format, with producers set to delegate the role of emcee to a selection of A-listers who will introduce various segments. "I hear everything you're saying, but I want everybody to know I'm done with it".

As for criticism over the timing and tone of his apology to the LGBTQ community, Hart commented, "I'm done with it".

"I'm over that. I'm over the moment, and I'm about today", Hart said. "Right now from a time perspective, I don't really have time". Show producers are reportedly planning "a broadcast that will focus on starry skits and play up a high-profile year for music in film, thanks to likely nominees Lady Gaga, Dolly Parton, and Kendrick Lamar".

The "Deal or No Deal" host pointed out how even stars that did a great job (shoutout Ellen DeGeneres and Jimmy Kimmel!) still received negative backlash.

"If you didn't [hear the apology], I don't know what you're looking for", Hart said. Moreover, Variety's sources say the Academy was "furious" at what they call a "mischaracterization" of Ellen's call with them, as DeGeneres said on her show that she spoke with Academy members who said this was a big "misunderstanding" and would love to have Hart back. You've already expressed that it's not being educated on the subject, not realizing how unsafe those words are, not realizing how many kids are killed for being gay or beaten up every day ...

She admitted, "Now, I realize I may not be anybody's first choice", and added of her own polarizing persona, "I'm also problematic!" You've done it. Don't let those people win.
