Kevin Hart steps down as the Oscar host
December 7th, 2018 under Kevin Hart, Oscars. [ Comments: none ]


On Tuesday, Kevin Hart was named this year’s Oscar host. Almost immediately, some of his old homophobic Tweets came back to haunt him and people asked for him to be ousted. Including the Academy.

The actor says they told him to apologize or they were going to have to search for a new host. He refused to do it because he claims he has apologized for those old tweets in the past. He also says he is not the man he used to be.

Then hours later he tweeted, “I have made the choice to step down from hosting this year’s Oscar’s….this is because I do not want to be a distraction on a night that should be celebrated by so many amazing talented artists. I sincerely apologize to the LGBTQ community for my insensitive words from my past.?” Then he added, “I’m sorry that I hurt people.. I am evolving and want to continue to do so. My goal is to bring people together not tear us apart. Much love & appreciation to the Academy. I hope we can meet again.”

He had no choice and neither did Academy and ABC. After all, the latter already fired Roseanne and James Gunn over past tweets, so they could let him off the hook if they didn’t let the others.

When it comes to who should replace him, they probably go with Wanda Sykes. She is an African-American lesbian who appears on an ABC show. But I would love if they went with Rob Lowe. He needs redemption after the last time he was part of hosting the Oscars.

Actually, I would prefer no host and no montages that are a waste of time; but we know that is never going to happen in our lifetime.

Oh and I love you Billy Crystal, but I think your time has passed.

Who do you think should host the Oscars this year?

The Oscars finally found a host
December 4th, 2018 under Kevin Hart, Oscars. [ Comments: none ]


Remember in History of the World Part 1 when Madeline Kahn said no to all of those soldiers until she said yes? Well, it was the same thing with this year’s Oscars. Except the people that they were asking to host Hollywood’s big night were all saying no.

That was until today when Kevin Hart said yes to AMPAS and to us he had something else to say. He wrote, “For years I have been asked if I would ever Host the Oscars and my answer was always the same…I said that it would be the opportunity of a lifetime for me as a comedian and that it will happen when it’s suppose to. I am so happy to say that the day has finally come for me to host the Oscars. I am blown away simply because this has been a goal on my list for a long time…. To be able to join the legendary list of host that have graced that stage is unbelievable. I know my mom is smiling from ear to ear right now. I want to thank my family/friends/fans for supporting me & riding with me all this time…. will be sure to make this year’s Oscars a special one. I appreciate the @TheAcademy for the opportunity now it’s time to rise to the occasion #Oscars.”

I think they made it a good call. It just would have been a better one if they could have gotten The Rock to do with it him. Since I have been saying for the last three years that they should be the ones to doing it together.

Plus, the Academy got lucky getting him because they need a big name to MC the night. That is because the movies people want to get nominated (Black Panther and Crazy Rich Asians) will not and the ones they never heard of will. There has been absolutely no Oscar buzz and it is already December 4th.

BTWF: Kevin Hart doing stand-up
December 4th, 2018 under Before They Were Famous, Kevin Hart. [ Comments: none ]


Before Kevin Hart was hosting Hollywood’s biggest night, he wasn’t even headling at comedy clubs. How funny was the 19-year-old back in 1998 doing stand-up at Caroline’s?

The Upside looks like next year’s uplifting film
October 3rd, 2018 under Bryan Cranston, Keith & Nicole Urban, Kevin Hart. [ Comments: none ]


The first trailer is out for The Upside and the American version of The Intouchables looks like it will touch our hearts. So much so, I am surprised that they are waiting until April to release it. It feels like an Oscar movie with the Oscar for Best Actor going to Kevin Hart. Just joking, going to Bryan Cranston, of course.

What do you think?

Kevin Hart in a house that is the perfect size for him!
October 1st, 2018 under Kevin Hart. [ Comments: none ]


I don’t know about you, but I find shows like Might Tiny Houses on HGTV really interesting. I enjoy watching how they convert these little spaces into livable homes. Not that I could live in one, but the math behind it amazes me.

I am not the only one because Booking.com teamed up with Kevin Hart to make a tiny house that is just 268 square feet. A home that is the perfect size for him. Although, I am not sure if his good friend The Rock came by to visit if he would be able to fit in it. Do you?

Is Hart going to live in that house that makes him seem like a giant? Nope, according to Today, if you go to Elizabethtown, Pa, then you can stay in it. Why there? Because Tiny States is the largest community of tiny homes. Isn’t that an oxymoron?
