Coop Makes Kevin Sweat

Way back in 2019, Kevin Hart was announced as host of the Oscars.  He was dumped shortly thereafter when homophobic tweets from 2011 resurfaced.  He addressed that situation with Anderson Cooper on 60 Minutes last week.  He credits Wanda Sykes for helping him understand the situation.  She said, “There’s people that are being hurt today because of comments like the ones that you made then, and there’s people that were saying it’s okay to make those comments today based off of what you did then.”  Hart told Coop, “It was presented to me in a way where I couldn’t ignore that.  So in those moments of despair, great understanding and education can come out of it if you’re given the opportunity.”  I think that’s a roundabout way of saying he’d like the Academy to ask him again.


A handful of gay performers are being honored at the Celebration of LGBTQ+ Cinema & Television presented by the Critics Choice Association.  The event will take place on Friday, June 7th and will stream later on HereTV – which I didn’t even know was still a thing.  The event will be hosted by Sherry Cola.  The Career Achievement Award will be given to Nathan Lane, and the Social Justice Award will go to George Takei.  A full list of honorees can be found at
