Kevin Hart is on the mend, making his first public appearance two months after a serious car crash in Los Angeles.

Hart accepted the People’s Choice Award for Comedy Act on Sunday night.

“First and foremost, man, thank God, because I definitely don’t have to be here. Being that I am, it makes me appreciate life even more. It makes me appreciate the things that really matter — family. I want to thank my wife and my kids, who really stepped up to the plate for me. I also want to take the time to thank the People’s Choice Awards just for this. This is amazing, but more importantly, the people, man. You have no idea the effect that you have on us as entertainers. Your energy, your support, it means the world, and I truly want to thank you guys for being here for me in my difficult time. This is special. They all are. I do not take them for granted. Thank you so much. God bless everybody in this room. Peace.”
