Chris Rock to Host the 2016 Oscars!

By  | 

Comedian Chris Rock will be the host of the 2016 Academy Awards. This is not the first time Rock has been on stage at the Oscars — he hosted the award show in 2005. According to Variety, “Rock, who generally got thumbs-up from critics for his previous hosting stint, ruffled a few feathers at the Academy Awards with his barbs at the industry, such as questioning why Jude Law was starring in so many films, which drew a testy rebuttal from presenter Sean Penn.”

Ruffled feathers or not, Rock’s performance that night was one to remember. We are anxious to see him grace the Oscars stage next year.
