Kevin Hart to Host the 2019 ACADEMY AWARDS

Last night, Kevin Hart took to Instagram to confirm he would be the host of the 2019 Academy Awards. In the post, Hart said, "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."

The show will air on February 24 on ABC. Jimmy Kimmel hosted the show for the past two years.

Hart most recently starred in the film "Night School" alongside Tiffany Haddish, which opened at number one at the box office when it debuted and marked the biggest comedy opening weekend of 2018.

Hart also currently has a first-look film deal with Universal Studios. His other projects include "The Next Level" and "Hart of the City" on Comedy Central, and shows like "Cold as Balls" and "What the Fit" on the LOL Network, Hart's streaming comedy platform.
