Kevin Hart is definitely out as Oscar host and Whoopi Goldberg is definitely in – if only they’d ask her.
The View co-host has made it clear to the Motion Picture Academy that she’s willing to host next month’s Oscars. She’s done it four-times before. A source said, (quote) “Whoopi really is game to do it though.”
Last month, Whoopi expressed her opinion that it was “dumb” to go without a formal host. Behind the scenes, the Academy plans to forego a host and recruit as many A-listers as possible to present awards. (New York Post)
