Many people have been wishing for this to happen for several years. And finally, the time has come. Kevin Hart the American comedian will be hosting the 91st Oscars.

Previous two Oscars were hosted by Jimmy Kimmel and produced by Michael De Luca and Jennifer Todd. That is not going to happen in the February 2019 event.

This time the producers overseeing the show will be Donna Gigliotti and Glenn Weiss. The respective roles will be of a producer for Gigliotti and co-producer and director for Weiss.

This change happened because the rating of the Oscars has declined over the past years. And The Academy is hoping to raise those rating with these new changes.

Previously Kevin Hart has hosted MTV Movie Awards along with Dwayne Johnson. But the comedian wanted to host the Oscars from a long time and he has been actively promoting himself to get the role.

On his appearance on the morning show Live With Kelly and Michael in 2015 he said the following to the show’s hosts.

That would be a major accomplishment. With what I’ve done and the progress I’ve made in my career, that’s definitely the next major step, I feel, for a comedian.

That show is now called Live With Kelly and Ryan.

And now the time for Kevin Hart has finally arrived. Here’s the Instagram post the comedian and actor posted a few minutes ago.
