Ellen tried to get Kevin Hart's gig back to host the Oscars

What did they say??

Ellen has spoken to the Academy on behalf of Kevin Hart to see if he can get reinstated to host this year's Oscars.

Of course, there was all that controversy surrounding Hart over some homophobic tweets he posted years ago, which he addressed and apologised for at the time. But the backlash from the LGBTQI community was enough to get the Academy to ask Hart to apologise again, which he decided not to do and stepped down as host. 

Even though Ellen had gone into bat for him, Hart was still reluctant to host the ceremony as he doesn't want the focus of the night to be on him, rather, on the people receiving the awards.

But good on ya Ellen, for sticking up for KH.
