Hold the phone! If Chris Rock joins the Oscar boycott and bows out of his hosting duties, none other than Kanye West is ready to step in and shake up the awards ceremony, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned!
Uh oh! Kanye West has put another giant tick on his bucket list of mega goals, and this time he wants to host the Academy Awards, and not only that he wants to present one to wife Kim Kardashian, even though she’s not even an actress! But hey, he already wants to run for president so he’s definitely one to shoot for the Moon! HollywoodLife.com has the EXCLUSIVE details on Yeezy’s newest lofty goal and how he wants to shake up the ceremony!
“Kanye would host the Oscars in a second. If Chris Rock backs out Kanye wants in. Ye would turn that entire evening upside down. If you thought that stunt he pulled with Taylor Swift was epic, you ain’t seen nothing yet,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
“Nobody that’s nominated is getting awarded if he’s hosting. Kanye told Kim if he hosted that show, he’d be presenting awards and nominating and awarding those who he himself feels should be nominated or awarded. It would be the Academy of Kanye Awards and Kanye knows it would be the most watched Oscar show in the history of the program,” our insider adds. While we have no doubt that he’d for sure pull in the viewers, there’s no way the Motion Picture Academy would ever allow a takeover like this.
“He told Kim he’d even add a new category, Best Actress in a reality television show. And of course, he’d give the award to Kim because well, he feels she is! Kanye would kill for all that air time and would also use it as a platform for his presidential run in 2020,” our source shares. Umm, there are already awards for TV recognition called the Emmy’s, and if it’s a reality show, you’re not supposed to be “acting,” right? Oh Kanye…never change.
HollywoodLifers, would you watch the Oscars if Kanye hosted the ceremony?
