Academy Awards PCd itself out of a host, floats a host-less Oscar night after ironic turn of events

December 11, 2018 | Vivek Saxena

When members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences threatened to oust comedian Kevin Hart as the Oscars host unless he publicly apologized for allegedly homophobic jokes he made almost a decade ago, they expected him to kowtow to their demands.

Instead he initially publicly pushed back against the Academy. But in doing so he triggered so much backlash from social justice mobs that he wound up voluntarily resigning from the gig.

Look:

Kevin Hart

@KevinHart4real
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.

This left the Academy reeling, say insider sources who spoke with Variety magazine: Theyre freaking out, one source said, adding that the Academy had no contingency plans in place.

While the Academy could just rehire Jimmy Kimmel he hosted both the 89th and 90th Academy Awards in 2017 and 2018, respectively or pick another late-night host, members of the 91-year-old organization are now frightened they might trigger the SJW mob again.

And so the Academy is now bandying about the idea of ditching a host altogether and instead utilizing a bunch of huge celebs, something SNL style, and buzzy people to keep the show moving, according to Varietys insider sources.

A stunt like a group monologue was floated, one source added, the magazine reported.

The Academy has until Feb. 24 to arrive at a solution.
Good grief, stupid political correctness has run amok by the idiots who have never made a mistake in their entire lives.
They did the same thing to the guy that just won the Heisman Trophy.

I guess that's okay because he's Jimmy K.

I have never watched any of the TV/Movie awards show. I think I caught the Country Music one a long time ago.

And, of course, Joe Montana's induction into the Hall of Fame, in person.

They could stop having the Everybody Gets A Trophy glitz and Bling and I don't think I would notice.

I like them if I've seen the movie, but last year it was helpful because we watched a couple they showed clips of. And next year the Emmys is what I definitely want to watch to see if Game of Thrones picks up anything from its finale.

And openly peeked up girls dresses while they were jumping on trampolines.

If anybody has a lot of 20 YO baggage to account for, it would be Kimmel.

Because he's a liberal. No other reason needed.

I've no quarrel with what someone did years ago. That does not figure in my voting decisions.

I won a fist fight back when I was around 12. If I were running for something that would make me a long time bully.
