Lemon lost the plot a bit, acting visibly nervous, if not defensive, of Hart's comments on "Straight From the Hart", where he said he had no desire to be an ally to the LGBT community - something Lemon had urged him to become in his January 4 critique. "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", said DeGeneres. What are your thoughts?' And they were like, 'oh my God, we want him to host. This is wrong now. People have pointed out that they haven't been able to find any of the apologies.

"The fight is the will and want for equality. I can move forward or I can't, but you can't grow as a person unless you make mistakes". "I don't see any meaningful outreach to the community.... and now you want the conversation to end". If you don't want to accept people for their change, then where are you trying to get to the equal part? Where does the equality part come in?

"Ultimately, Hart felt his hosting would become a distraction, a continuing controversial narrative that would take the spotlight off the people and movies being honored".

Hart's sit down with DeGeneres comes as PEOPLE exclusively revealed that the Academy is open to having Hart host this year. She says its reps instantly replied that they still wanted the funnyman to be the night's MC. I don't have a homophobic bone in my body. "You've done it. Don't let those people win - host the Oscars". "You can't let them destroy you and they can't destroy you because you have too much talent".

Meanwhile, the Academy appears to be planning an Oscarcast devoid of a host and will instead will enlist some of the biggest A and B-listers to present awards. I have no idea if he wants to come back and host. "I appreciate the @TheAcademy for the opportunity.now it's time to rise to the occasion".

Chrissy Metz Shuts Down Rumor About Golden Globes Red Carpet Drama
Brie later posted on her Instagram account a picture of the two actresses together and said, "Nothing but love for @ChrissyMetz". When Alison Brie wears custom Vera Wang, she does it with a little edge. "'But why?,' she asked.


The "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle" star initially said he wouldn't apologize because he had addressed the issue several times.

Hart was on his "Straight From the Hart" podcast Monday where he got into a deep discussion about his past homophobic jokes and tweets.

An insider close to the production said Hart would have to approach them with "willingness to return". "He can help change homophobia in the black community".

We guess Ellen's compassion doesn't extend to the demanders of social media.

Kevin Hart says Kevin Hart is so sorry. "I apologize." He then went on to explain the jokes in question.
