Back to the drawing board!
As we reported, Kevin Hart backed out of hosting the 2019 Oscars on Thursday due to his anti-gay jokes from long ago resurfacing, causing an internet uproar, and putting him in the awkward — and clearly very traumatizing — spot to say he was sorry.
Now that Hartâ€™s out, the Academy is back on the search for a host who is both funny and without a history of questionable homophobia. Someone engaging and controversial — but not too controversial! Network TV controversial. So, likeâ€¦ Ellen DeGeneres.
Thankfully, social media is bustling with suggestions. Twitter has already nominated the likes of Billy Eichner, Tiffany Haddish, Patton Oswalt, Kristen Bell, Wanda Sykes, and Dwayne â€œThe Rockâ€� Johnson. (Weâ€™d also like to throw Keegan-Michael KeyÂ andÂ Jordan Peele in the ring as co-hosts!)
Which of these stars do YOU think should host the 2019 Oscars? Or do you think NO ONE should host it? Thatâ€™s fine, too! Cast your votes (below)!
