Kevin Hart to host the 2019 Oscars

Kevin Hart is to host the 2019 Oscars. 

The actor and comedian, best known for his roles in Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle and Ride Along, will take charge of the awards early next year. 

Posting about the role, Hart said: "I am so happy to say that the day has come for me to host the Oscars," he says on the post. I am blown away simply because this has been a goal on my list for a long time."


Next year’s Oscars will take place on February 24th at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. 

Plans for a new category aimed at rewarding "outstanding achievement in popular film" have been delayed and will not take effect for the 2019 show.
