The 37-year-old stand-up comedian turned top-grossing actor grew emotional as he thanked those who helped in achieving his success.
Good friends and mentors Tim Story, Will Packer, and Ice Cube accompanied the star, who they say has the biggest "heart" in town.
"I don't get here without you and without your support. I am a representation of what you have made me. I love you all. Thank you so much. Today is an honor," Hart said as he thanked his fans.
His latest film featuring his stand-up, "Kevin Hart: What Now?" will be released in theaters on Friday.
