Kevin Hart to host 2019 Oscars!

Kevin Hart announced earlier tonight via Instagram that he will be hosting the 2019 Academy Awards on February 24th, 2019!

In a interview last year with Variety, Kevin said “It would be something I would definitely do just to say I did it in my career,” and that “It would be great to say I had that moment.”

That moment will be in only a few short months! Check out his Instagram post from earlier tonight below.

For years I have been asked if I would ever Host the Oscars and my answer was always the same…I said that it would be the opportunity of a lifetime for me as a comedian and that it will happen when it’s suppose to. I am so happy to say that the day has finally come for me to host the Oscars. I am blown away simply because this has been a goal on my list for a long time….To be able to join the legendary list of host that have graced that stage is unbelievable. I know my mom is smiling from ear to ear right now. I want to thank my family/friends/fans for supporting me & riding with me all this time….I will be sure to make this years Oscars a special one. I appreciate the @TheAcademy for the opportunity ….now it’s time to rise to the occasion #Oscars
