Kevin Hart Will Host The 2019 Oscars

Kevin Hart will host the 2019 Oscars, he announced Tuesday.

Kevin said he was honoured to take the helm and that he would not disappoint the people that have supported him and expected him to bring his A-game.

"To be able to join the legendary list of host (sic) that have graced that stage is unbelievable".

He also promised to make this year's show "a special one".

Hart's unveiling comes just hours after influential trade magazine The Hollywood Reporter called the host's job, "the worst job in town", after previous appointments experienced difficulties on the night. "I appreciate the @TheAcademy for the opportunity ....now it's time to rise to the occasion #Oscars", Hart concluded.

Hart will follow up Jimmy Kimmel, host of the last two Oscars ceremonies, whose broadcast last March hit a record-low 26.5 million viewers.

Many are speculating that season seven will be winter-themed, with most of the images featuring a winter aesthetic. It may well answer criticism from some parents that Fortnite concentrates too heavily on killing other players.

Good job, buddy! Congrats on living your dream! "It would be great to say I had that moment".

Kevin Hart continues to stack his accolades.

"I think when I do eventually host the Oscars, I think that the time will be right", he explained. "I'm excited to see my guy Chris Rock, who is a great friend of mine, host".

Hart, 39, got his first big break after being cast in the Judd Apatow-produced television show Undeclared before heading to the silver in romps like Scary Movie 3 and Soul Plane.
