Kevin Hart refuses to host an award show again: 'Those days are done'

Kevin Hart insists he will not host an award show ever again.

“Whatever little hope you had, I want to destroy it right now,” Kevin told Sky News. “Those gigs aren’t good gigs for comics. It’s no shot to the Oscars, no shot to the Globes or anything else. Those just aren’t comedy-friendly environments anymore.

“I think they got it right one year where it was like just a bunch of personalities acting as the hosts, and that’s a nice thing. It’s a collaborative thing. Different people get to be responsible for act one, act two, act three. But, you know, the days of it being a room for a comic, those days are done.”

Hart’s comments come after comedian Jo Koy received backlash for his jokes at the 2024 Golden Globes. Among some of Koy’s alleged misses was a joke targeting musician Taylor Swift and multiple digs at the 2023 blockbuster “Barbie.”
