Last night Kevin Hart took to social media to announce his latest achievement of hosting the Oscars. He will now join the ranks of other comedians that have received this honor. I hope he knocks it out the park. Check out his heartfelt personal announcement 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 supposed to. I am so happy to say that the day has finally come for me to host the Oscars.
