(WJBF) - Talk Show Host Ellen Degeneres wants Kevin Hart to host this year's Oscars.
The comedian stepped down last month after homophobic tweets from nearly 10 years ago resurfaced.
In an interview on The Ellen Show, Ellen says she called The Academy to personally ask them to reconsider having Hart host the award show next month.
Hart told Ellen that he has regrets and will re-evaluate taking the Oscar host role.
