Kevin Hart addresses the Oscars diversity issue while introducing The Weeknd...
Before introducing Academy Award nominated singer The Weeknd comedian Kevin Hart got serious for a moment telling the crowd,
"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."
“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."
