2019 oscars host

UPDATE #2: Well, all that back and forth was for nothing. Deadline reports Kevin Hart has decided not to host the Oscars after reevaluating his decision following some prodding from Ellen DeGeneres. Hart was not only concerned about having less time to prepare, but he didn’t want to be a distraction from everything else on the big night either. Instead, the Academy will have some of the biggest names in Hollywood presenting awards. Our original story from January 4 follows below.

UPDATE: Variety now reports that “key parties involved in the annual Oscars telecast are open to the return of Kevin Hart as host” if he wants the job. Our original article from this morning follows.

People have noticed that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences have yet to choose a 2019 Oscars host following the exit of their first choice, Kevin Hart. But, according to Ellen DeGeneres, that’s because they’re waiting for him to return.

Hart stepped down from the Oscars hosting gig following outcry over anti-LGBT tweets that were resurfaced following his announcement as host. But following an interview with The Ellen Show host, Hart is apparently reconsidering.

Uptown Saturday Night Remake

It’s been years since we heard about the gestating remake of Uptown Saturday Night. But the project appears to be back on track, albeit with some changes behind the scenes and in front of the camera.
