Whoopi Goldberg is 'game' to host the Oscars

Don Lemon Responds To Kevin Hart Saying He Doesn't Want To Be An LGBT Ally

"I'm not giving no more explanation of who I am", the comic told his friend and GMA co-host Michael Strahan, insisting, "I'm just done..."

'I'm over that, I'm over the moment, and I'm about today, so if it's accepted, great, if it's not, it's nothing I can control. "I didn't say these words to people, at the time, this was our dumb a-- on Twitter going back and forth with each other", he mused. The Academy Awards have had a host for every awards show since 1990, but this year marks a significant change.

In the above video, their conversation starts at 1:25.

He said: "I'm done with it".

With a little less than six weeks to find a replacement for the February 24 show, the Academy has chose to nix a host altogether, according to a report by Variety.

Kevin Hart wants to make one thing very clear - he's not interested in talking about the Oscars controversy anymore. I am truly happy people....there is nothing that you can do to change that... After an appearance on Ellen Degeneres' show, it was rumored that the Academy had considered welcoming Hart back as the host had he used the opportunity to apologize.

"The Oscars are poised to embark on one of the most radical reinventions in the awards show's long history", reports Variety.

Samsung, like Apple, feels sting of slowing global growth
CNBC also reported that Samsung is expecting a revenue drop of about 11% to about 59 trillion won (~$52 billion) for one year ago. Samsung had a smashing 2018 performance with multiple record-breaking quarters, mostly thanks to a boom in memory chips demand.

Hart stepped down December 7 from hosting the Oscars - just two days after announcing he would host - after homophobic comments surfaced that he made years ago. You're not getting no more of my energy from it. It keeps going and every headline is "you apologized"...

The last time the Academy Awards went without a host was 1989 - the year Rain Man won Best Picture, Best Actor (Dustin Hoffman) and Best Director (Barry Levinson).

Strahan asked how Hart would respond to the people who take issue with the way that the comedian has apologized in the weeks following his removal as host.

Howie Mandel said he would "never" host the Academy Awards, because he thinks it is a lousy gig. "I've said everything I can possibly say".

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

"No. I'm not hosting the Oscars this year", he said. You want me to be the face of this community because of this joke? "I have nothing else to prove". She says its reps instantly replied that they still wanted the funnyman to be the night's MC.
