Comedian Kevin Hart appeared on the Ellen Degeneres show today.
Ellen says she called officials with the Oscar awards and personally asked them to reconsider having Hart host the award show.
Hart stepped down last month after tweets from nearly 10 years ago resurfaced with derogatory language he use while referring to gay people.
Hart told Ellen he has regrets about those tweets and will re-evaluate retaking the Oscar host role.
