Comedic actor Kevin Hart has been selected to host this year’s 91st Academy Awards. The Oscars are right around the corner after this holiday season with the show being on February 24th. In the past interviewers have asked Hart if he would ever like to host the Oscars to which he’s always said yes. Now his wish has come true and Hart has stated that he’s honored to cross this goal off his list. Hart has big plans up his sleeve to make the show spectacular and if anyone has ever seen his films or comedy routines know he’ll definitely come up with some witty stuff for that night.
Hart tweeted that he was going to host the show this past Monday and the Academy responded with the tweet welcome to the family. Despite having a good host for the show is it enough to bring the ratings back up? In the past couple of years, the show’s numbers in popularity have seriously dropped for various reasons. Some of these reasons include not enough films getting the right kind of recognition especially since the Oscars have been only focusing on the artsy films. Unlike in the past where they focused on artsy and big box office films like Dark Knight and Lord of the Rings.
