Kevin Hart calls it, “the opportunity of a lifetime” in his post announcing that he will be hosting the Oscars next year!

Kevin Hart posted this pic with the caption: “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. I am so happy to say that the day has finally come for me to host the Oscars. I am blown away simply because this has been on my goal list for a long time…To be able to join the legendary list of host(s) that have graced that stage is unbelievable. I know my mom is smiling from ear to ear right now. I want to thank my family/friends/fans for supporting me & riding with me all this time…I will be sure to make this year(‘)s Oscars a special one. I appreciate the Academy for the opportunity…now it’s time to rise to the occasion.”

Congratulations to Kevin Hart!  I can’t wait to see him in action at the Oscars.
