Why has it become so hard to find a host for the Oscars?
Every Monday, the q screen panel convenes to look at big stories happening in the film and television worlds. This week, arts and entertainment writers John Semley and Tina Hassannia join Tom Power to discuss why it's so hard to find a host for the Oscars.

Hart made the announcement via Twitter after past homophobic tweets of his resurfaced. For now, the Oscars are without a host. So when exactly this dream job became so difficult to fill?
I have made the choice to step down from hosting this year's Oscar's....this is because I do not want to be a distraction on a night that should be celebrated by so many amazing talented artists. I sincerely apologize to the LGBTQ community for my insensitive words from my past.—@KevinHart4real
