Kevin Hart’s Inspiring Speech At The Oscars

In a night where diversity was talked about often, Hollywood actor kelvin Hart took his moment on stage to address the #OscarsSoWhite controversy.

Before introducing The Weeknd’s performance, the comedian gave a shout-out to the black actors who were ignored in this year’s all four acting categories for a second straight year.

“I just want to take a second to get something off my chest. First and foremost, I’m a positive guy I feed off of positive energy, I feel like positive overall beats negative,” said Hart, who came dressed in an all-black tuxedo.

“With that being said, I want to applaud all of the actors and actresses of color that didn’t get nominated tonight. The reason why I say that is because I want them to understand that tonight should not determine the hard work and effort that you put into your craft.

“At the end of the day we love what we do, we’re breaking major ground doing it. These problems of today will eventually become problems of the old. Let’s not let this negative issue of diversity beat us, let’s continue to do what we do best. With that being said, congratulations on an amazing year.

“I only came tonight because I thought for sure I’d get a seat in the front row,” Hart joked.

The 36-year old star also took to his Instagram page to further emphasise his message.

He had earlier posted a picture of himself and fiancee Eniko Parrish, hashtagging it #allblackforareason.
