The latter apology caused severe criticism, with many calling out the talk show host for defending Hart and vouching for him to still host the Oscars. "I'm literally, I'm over that, I'm over the moment". It remains to be seen how that will come together, but Variety says this year's plans include key changes that will require less time from a host anyway, so the absence of one may not be as strongly felt. But he doesn't want "people to think there's a thing about me and the Academy".
In the above video, their conversation starts at 1:25. NOTHING. I work hard on a daily basis to spread positivity to all....with that being said. For now, the Academy is scrambling to secure the top talent in the small window of time (six weeks) they have until the show airs on February 24. I'm not saying how I've changed anymore ...
As for whether he'll host this year's Oscars after all, Hart gave a definitive "no" for the first time. "It gets no more energy from me", Hart said. "I'm going to be me; I'm going to stand my ground".

Kanter, however, stopped short of requesting a trade during a recent meeting with general manager Scott Perry. Once his contract expires at the end of the season, he is likely to get short-term deals at best.
"If you didn't [hear the apology], I don't know what you're looking for", Hart said.
Kevin continued to speak about the scandal on his SiriusXM show Straight From the Hart on Monday, taking the opportunity to apologize again. "I have nothing else to prove or do".
That doesn't mean he's shutting down the possibility of hosting the Oscars another year.
Shortly after his "Homophobic" tweets went viral, the Academy, offering an ultimatum to the actor, asked him to issue an official statement apologising for his remarks.
Hart's "GMA" interview Wednesday capped off a roller coaster few weeks, which date back to when he was announced as the host for the Oscars on December 4.
Hart refused to apologise, saying he "chose to pass" as he has "addressed this several times before".
