Why Kevin Hart Is The Perfect Choice To Host The Academy Awards 2019
Kevin Hart expressed that he is elated to join the “legendary list” of Oscars front men for the Academy Awards 2019. Confirming his role as the Oscars 2019 host, Kevin Hart exclaims that donning the cap of an Academy Awards host was a major goal on his bucket list for long. Hart describes his new duty as an “opportunity of a lifetime for me as a comedian.” He also added “my mom is smiling from ear to ear right now.” Hart is stepping into the shoes of Jimmy Kimmel who presented the Oscars last year.
Choosing The Oscars 2019 Host Was A Tough Job
This time, the selection of Academy’s anchor saw a noticeable delay. Stephen Galloway mentions that choosing an Oscar host is a tough gig. The responsibility of staking up the ratings for the Award Night lies on the anchor’s shoulders, and he has to maintain a gripping perfectionism at a minimal wage. What’s worse is that the role is largely unrewarding in a sense of the lack of recognition. People remember only those hosts who screw up. They don’t necessarily celebrate the ones who nail their jobs.
Why Kevin Hart Perfectly Fitted The Bill As An Academy Awards 2019 Host
When considering celebrities to present the Oscars, a lot of factors influence the selection. Appointing Sarah Silverman to compare for the evening might result in a discourse of disgusting remarks. John Oliver on the other hand, being unable to contain his political partisanship, would elaborate upon how Trump would have worked better than Smaug on The Hobbit.
This dilemma exactly advocates, the reason, why Kevin Hart is a perfect choice to host the Academy Awards 2019. Kevin Hart can play it safely with unrestricted humor without being tasteless. Kevin Hart possesses the gravitas as Hart, a comedian and a performer. The Academy Awards have, in the past, royally snubbed Kevin Hart from its nomination list. Hence it is fitting that the Oscars 2019 give Hart his due with a noble hosting gig. Hart will definitely create magic as an Academy Awards host. His jovial instincts deal with a wide array of topics. Thus, as an Oscars 2019 host Hart would really stand out with his all round up satire.

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 a goal on my list for a long time….To be able to join the legendary list of host 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 years Oscars a special one. I appreciate the @TheAcademy for the opportunity ….now it’s time to rise to the occasion #Oscars
Moreover with Kevin Hart it is easier to predict that something as dramatic as the 2017’s #Envelopegate would not happen again. Previously the award for the best picture was handed wrongly to La La Land instead of Moonlight. Though this envelope malaise did not really help boost the ratings for the show, it did cause a great deal of embarrassment for the Academy. This time the Oscars host Kevin Hart has an additional burden to carry his compèring duties seamlessly. The Academy Awards retain ABC as their airing station and with the numbers already in decline for the network. The Academy Awards 2019 host will have to push himself to bring about magnetically inviting show.

The Oscars And Their Struggle For Ratings
The Oscars have seen a precipitous decline in their ratings. Furthermore several noticeable entertainment personalities have sidestepped the job. No one from Oprah Winfrey, Justin Timberlake, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Julia Louis or Jerry Seinfeld were ready to take on the role of the Academy Awards 2019 host. Hence the biggest obstruction in the hunt for the perfect Oscars 2019 host was the fact that no celebrity was ready to run the gauntlet more than twice.
