One of the most surprising was Kevin Hart, who was part of a devastating car accident in September in Calabasas, California. Hart fractured his spine and has since been in rehab. This was the first major public appearance since his crash.
“Thank God because I definitely don’t have to be here,” Hart said when he took the stage to accept the award for comedy act of the year. “Being that I am, it makes me appreciate life even more — appreciate the things that really matter, family. I wanna thank my wife and my kids … I want to thank you all for being there for me during my difficult time.”
