Hart’s exit raises ques­tions for Os­cars

Albany Times Union - - NEWS -

The dust is still set­tling from the fall­out of co­me­dian Kevin Hart’s short stint as host of the 91st Academy Awards.

Hart an­nounced on Thurs­day night that he was bow­ing out of the gig af­ter pub­lic out­rage over old anti-gay tweets reached a tip­ping point.

Faced with de­clin­ing rat­ings and a crit­i­cal view­er­ship, host­ing the Os­cars is re­ferred to by many in Hol­ly­wood as the most thank­less job in town. It’s just the lat­est storm for the or­ga­ni­za­tion that puts on the Academy Awards.
