Kevin Hart: Comedic Genius Award At 2015 MTV Movie Awards Given To Comedian
After all his recent success, Kevin was perfectly appointed the title of Comedic Genius at the MTV Movie Awards on Apr. 12.
Kevin wins the award in recognition of his long list of comedy films and also small-screen projects such as Real Husbands of Hollywood and The Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber.
Jimmy Kimmel, 47, presented the award to Kevin. Keeping in tune with the theme of the award, Jimmy made sure to include some jokes about Kevin before he handed over the Golden Popcorn.
Among the jabs? “They said Kevin was too small to be a comedy giant. They said he wasn’t large enough, that he wasn’t big enough to hang with the big boys,” Jimmy said, poking fun at Kevin’s 5’4″ frame.
Kevin took the joke with ease and gladly accepted the award – and even brought his adorable kids, Hendrix, 7, and Heaven Leigh, 10, on stage with him to be with him during his speech. Aw!
Kevin thanked Jimmy and MTV, and gave a big thanks to his fans for the award. “This is a big honor,” he said,”To my fans. I couldn’t have done this without y’all. I love y’all so much.”

Although Kevin gave a big shout-out to his fans, he made sure that his family came first when accepting his new award.
With Hendrix and Heaven Leigh looking up at their dad, Kevin explained that his kiddos are the reason he works so hard for his success.
“I want to thank Heaven for being the most amazing daughter ever, Hendrix for being the most amazing son, ever,” Kevin explained. “I do it all for them and I’m trying to leave a legacy behind so when it’s all said an done, the last name Hart means something!”
