Kevin Hart is still being considered to host the Oscars after apologising for his offensive tweet.
The 'Night School' star initially refused to say sorry for past jokes made on his Twitter account because he had done so years ago, and decided to step down from his role hosting the Academy Awards in February - but it is said that he could be brought back for the role.
A source told PEOPLE magazine: "There has been a steady stream of buzz that things might work out between Kevin and the Academy.
"The Academy never really axed him - they wanted him to apologise - he wouldn't, and then he was the one to drop out."
Kevin's decision to publicly say sorry for his comments came after he chose to step down from hosting duties, a decision which was said to have puzzled some Academy members.
