Hart, who has starred in movies such as “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” and “Ride Along,” told fans he was “blown away” by the honor in an Instagram post where he revealed the news and promised to make the 2019 Oscars a special one.

 “For years I have been asked if I would ever Host the Oscars and my answer was always the same,” he wrote on Instagram. “I said that it would be the opportunity of a lifetime for me as a comedian and that it will happen when it’s supposed to. I am so happy to say that day has finally come for me to host the Oscars.”
Hart takes over the job from late-night host Jimmy Kimmel, who has hosted the Oscars for the past two years. Previous hosts also include Ellen Degeneres, Chris Rock, Billy Crystal and Neil Patrick Harris.
“To be able to join the legendary list of host who have graced that stage is unbelievable,” Hart continued. “I know my mom is smiling from ear to ear right now.”
