Kevin Hart Will Host the 2019 Oscars

Kevin Hart Will Host the 2019 Oscars
We now know who is going to be hosting the Oscars next year, and it's not exactly a huge surprise. Comedian Kevin Hart has been officially chosen for the role, and it will be his first time serving as the show's emcee. This follows earlier reports that the actor had been in talks with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences about hosting the ceremony. In response, Hart has publicly said he's happy to rise to the occasion to "make this year's Oscars a special one." The show will be produced for the first time by Donna Gigliotti and Glenn Weiss, with the latter also serving as the director.

For the past two years, the Oscars ceremony had been hosted by late-night comedian Jimmy Kimmel, with Michael De Luca and Jennifer Todd producing. Ratings have also been consistently declining for the broadcast, resulting in last year's record-low numbers of 26.5 million viewers.
