The popular American comedian Kevin Hart would be hosting the 2019 oscar award come February. He would be joining a lineup of iconic comedians to have filled that role, including Chris Rock, Jimmy Kimmel, Billy Crystal, Johnny Carson and Bob Hope.
In an emotional Instagram post, the comedian wrote, ‘‘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 hosts that have graced that stage is unbelievable”.
