Kevin Hart has confirmed his latest big-time role: Oscar host for the awards show on Feb. 24.

The Comedy star  wrote on Instagram Monday that he will emcee the 91st Academy Awards.

“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,” Hart wrote. “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.”

Hart promised to make the show “a special one,” adding, “Now it’s time to rise to the occasion #Oscars.”

Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel has host the Academy Awards show for the past two years, as ratings for the broadcast have declined in each year, hitting a record low of 26.5 million viewers tuning in last March.

The Oscars will air on ABC on February 24.
