'SNL' Promo: Kevin Hart Plans His Oscar-Winning Performance (Video)

Think the comedian doesn't have what it takes to be the next Academy Award winner? He's here to prove you wrong.

Kevin Hart SNL Promo - H 2013
NBC

Saturday Night Live welcomes comedian Kevin Hart to Studio 8H this weekend, and he's already thinking about winning an Oscar.

As Jason Sudeikis points out in new promos released Wednesday, three out of the four 2013 Oscar-winning actors hosted SNL this season (Jennifer Lawrence, Christoph Waltz and Anne Hathaway), prompting Hart to get teary-eyed about the possibility of maybe -- one day -- joining their ranks. The faux performance is so good that Hart gets his own Oscar … er, baseball trophy to take home. Sudeikis saves it: "No! That's his acting stick."

In another promo, Hart pokes fun at his height, often getting mistaken for Chris Tucker (and yes, even Lawrence), being a basketball expert (not really) and partying it up on an empty SNL stage.

Hart will be joined by musical guest Macklemore & Ryan Lewis.

Saturday Night Live airs at 11:30 p.m. Saturday on NBC.
