Kevin Hart is headed to the Oscars stage.
The comedian made the announcement on Instagram Tuesday that he had been selected to host the 2019 Academy Awards for the first time.
Hart succeeds Jimmy Kimmel, who has hosted the last two Academy Awards.
Hart has previously hosted award ceremonies like the BET Awards in 2011 and the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards.
The Hollywood Reporter has called hosting the Oscars "the least wanted job in Hollywood".
This year's ceremony attracted its smallest recorded US TV audience with 26.5 million total viewers, down from 32.9 million in 2017.
The Oscars will take place in Los Angeles on February 24, 2019.
