Well this would be one crazy Oscars twist! It turns out that Chris Rock, 51, really does have some competition in fellow funnyman Kevin Hart, 36, as the host of the Academy Awards. Chris joked in his opening monologue that he thought about dropping out from the role following the Oscar boycott controversy, but said the last thing he needed was to lose another job to Kevin. Whoopsie, that might actually happen now and HollywoodLife.com has the EXCLUSIVE details why.
Chris Rock, 51, did a fantastic job hosting the 2016 Oscars, during which he decided to use his platform to help raise money for the Girl Scouts of the USA. After plugging his daughters’ troop to the crowd, Chris sold boxes of Girl Scout cookies to the likes of Kate Winslet and John Legend and later announced that the whopping sales total was $65,243! While the big reveal was exciting, it seemed just a bit unrealistic — so we got to the bottom of it!
We’re not the only ones who thought Chris Rock, 51, killed it hosting the Oscars for the first time on Feb. 28. Stars are coming out in droves to show support for the comedian by tweeting messages of excitement, best wishes, and congratulations. See them all, here.
When it comes to being the cutest little boy at the 2016 Oscars, Jacob Tremblay had zero competition. The adorable actor stole the show on Feb. 28 when he presented an award and hilariously thanked Chris Rock for his performance in Madagascar!
The Academy Awards is the biggest night in film, so it’s not surprise a simple diss can turn into a massive cringe-worthy moment. Thankfully, on Feb. 28 the big show delivered one very funny moment in particular when Chris Rock, 51, had his daughters get involved in a bit. Yes, this OMG moment will go down in Oscar history.
It had to be the most awkward moment of the entire Oscars night. Chris Rock was talking about how the Academy is “taking steps” to solve the “Oscars So White” controversy and he said they had found the perfect person to be the Director of the Minority Outreach Program … Stacey Dash! They were obviously making fun of the time she went on Fox & Friends and said there was no diversity issue at the Oscars and that they should actually get rid of things like Black History Month. But it went terribly, terribly, wrong.
