The Oscars Is Trying To Assemble The AVENGERS

Angelina Jolie and Alfonso Cuarón attend the 'ROMA' Tastemakers Screening and Reception at San Vicente Bungalows

A few days after his old tweets went viral, Hart claims the Academy asked that he apologize.

The show producers are trying to move forward with a broadcast that will focus on starry skits and play a high-profile year for music in films, owing to the nominations of singers like Lady Gaga, Dolly Parton and Kendrick Lamar.

Instead of featuring one single host, the show will rely on a group of actors and celebrities who will introduce various segments and awards.

With Kevin Hart stepping down from hosting duties of The Oscars ceremony in February, the event is now host-less.

The Academy nearly reconsidered Hart after he agreed to sit down with talk show host Ellen Degeneres in early January.

Though encouraged to return by Ellen DeGeneres, a major LGBTQ advocate, Mr. Hart announced on "Good Morning America" Wednesday that he had no intention of returning.

The problem with that is that this would be the first time since 1989 that the Oscars went hostless, and that night also had a variety show vibe to it. "Right now from a time perspective, I don't really have time".

The Hollywood Reporter published an article Thursday claiming producers of the upcoming Academy Awards telecast are scrambling to get as many stars from the "Avengers" franchise as they can to appear on stage at some point. Snow White's entrance was followed by a grueling 12-minute musical number with dancing tables and chairs, Rob Lowe singing "Proud Mary", and lots of other things that made the audience visibly want to die.
