Kevin Hart of 'Real Husbands of Hollywood'
Kevin Hart, "Real Husbands of Hollywood"
Nomination Status: Not unless there has been a dynamic shift in Emmy demos in the past year.
In His Favor: I know of people who think "Real Husbands of Hollywood" is hilarious. But I know of many more people who have no awareness at all of how big a star Kevin Hart actually is and who look at the trailers for his comedy concert film or his attempts at romantic comedy and then are confused when they become extremely popular. It's the Tyler Perry syndrome, except that Kevin Hart also has some people who know him from his eager-to-please attempts to play basketball in various NBA All-Star Game celebrity showdowns. Honestly, though, I don't know what I'm talking about here. I've watched a minute of "Real Housewives of Hollywood." So I'm as bad as the rest of you.
Working Against Him: Kevin Hart is smack-dab in the middle of some radars, but I highly doubt that any of those radars coincide with Emmy voters. Also, like I said, I've watched one minute of "Real Housewives of Hollywood." It could be awful. I just know that it's more interesting to throw Kevin Hart's name out there than to, once again, blather about how lots of people like Joel McHale, but he definitely won't be nominated for an Emmy.
