Kevin Hart Confirms He’s Hosting The Oscars
Kevin Hart, whom Deadline earlier today revealed as a contender to host the 91st Academy Awards, just confirmed that he’s got the gig. He will become the fourth African American to emcee the show, following Richard Pryor, Whoopi Goldberg and Chris Rock.

“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,” Hart wrote in an Instagram post. “I am so happy to say that the day has finally come for me to host the Oscars.”

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences followed up with a confirmation of their own.
