Kevin Hart will host the 2019 Academy Awards fulfilling a lifelong dream for the actor-comedian

Kevin Hart took to Instagram on Tuesday to announce that he is hosting the 2019 Oscars.

The comedian took to Instagram to share the news and explained that being the host of the prestigious awards was a lifelong dream of his. "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 the stage is unbelievable", he added.

"I know my mom is smiling from ear to ear right now", he wrote.

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

"It would be something I would definitely do just to say I did it in my career", Hart told Variety. Hart went on to thank his family and friends and said it was now time to "rise to the occasion".

Anthony Joshua welcomes fight against Deontay Wilder or Tyson Fury
Fight statistics show Tyson Fury convincingly out-punched Deontay Wilder by a huge margin in their heavyweight boxing showdown. Earlier this week, Wilder's co-manager Shelly Finkel said the 33-year-old was "very interested" in fighting Joshua.

Moreover, his lighthearted, relatable brand of comedy is the flawless counterpoint for a ceremony steeped in tradition and loads of downtime.

Incidentally, Hart was suggested in that same story as someone who might be a good fit for the job: "funny without being tasteless".

Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel has hosted the Academy Awards show for the past two years, as ratings for the broadcast have declined in each year, hitting a record low of 26.5 million viewers tuning in last March. "The next step is to come here and host".

Kevin Hart continues to stack his accolades.

We finally have our 2019 Oscars host. Other recent hosts include Chris Rock, Neil Patrick Harris and Ellen DeGeneres.

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.
