Kevin Hart Gets Standing Ovation at People’s Choice Awards


Kevin Hart‘s getting back on his feet … and he’s got the support of Hollywood behind him.

Kevin made his first public appearance since his scary car wreck more than 2 months ago, to accept the Comedy Act Award at the E! People’s Choice Awards Sunday night for his Netflix special, ‘Irresponsible.’

The crowd gave Hart a standing ovation as he came out, and Robert Downey Jr. handed him the award.

Kevin said … “First and foremost, man, thank God because I definitely don’t have to be here.” He went on to say he appreciates life more now after his accident, especially the things that really matter — like his wife and kids.

Hart also thanked the people for their energy and support during his difficult time, saying … “You have no idea the effect you have on us as entertainers.”

As you know, Kevin was involved in a single car crash on September 1 with 2 other people, and suffered serious injuries along with the driver. Hart’s 3 spinal fractures required serious rehab and physical therapy … which he recently updated his fans about.

In the video, Kevin says … “No matter how much you think you’re in control, you’re not in control,” adding … “Don’t take today for granted, because tomorrow is not promised.”
