BYO Oscar Chances: Why On Earth Would The Academy Beg Kevin Hart To Host?

Clues? What on earth could they be thinking?

Anyone else think the no host-throw to presenter format could work?

    Why do we always get the non-apology apology from celebrities? I mean…they have to have someone near them who can say honestly that “addressing it” and apologizing are not the same thing. Right?

    And I’m actually disappointed, because I want Kevin to host the Oscars. And I think he’s a good guy. But he’s absolutely right that he should not host like this with a cloud hanging over the whole thing. Even Ellen can’t fix this one completely.

    This is from someone who likes Ellen…but she’s made some bad moves lately…her endorsement of Hart and taking on the mantle of the gay and lesbian community in trying to take charge of the situation….and not even asking him one hard question during the interview was a huge misfire. Her Netflix special is not good at all and her recent interviews where she whines about her talk show…she’s definitely lost some luster.

    The Academy should go with the no host “friends of Oscar” format that they used in 1969 and include the three surviving friends: Sidney Poitier, Jane Fonda and Diahann Carroll.

“That’s the joke of Prune, that we just pretend to be a restaurant. But we’re actually an institute for living. We hide behind the fried eggs, and we hide behind the marrow bones, but really what we’re doing here is trying to change the whole goddamn world, one lamb chop at a time. It’s slow going, but I think we’re getting there.”
~ Gabrielle Hamilton

“I’m into pleasure rebellion,” she says, lighting a cigarette. “I’ve shared all my misery and tragedy but in my personal life I’m a cheerleader, an optimist. That aspect of myself is not shared. Once you are free from trauma, you are going to luxuriate in pleasure and happiness – personal pleasure. A divine gluttony, I should say.”
