Kevin Hart appeared on The Ellen Show this week and spoke about his situation with hosting then not hosting The Oscars. He explained his side of the story for the first time. It's rare that we see Kevin Hart talk for so long without cracking a joke. You can watch his explanation, here.
Then Ellen says she thinks it's great that this happened because there needs to be a conversation about homophobia. She also told him she called The Academy and they still want him to host! You can watch Ellen's pitch to Kevin here.
