“It’s great to be back”
“Chris Rock is truly the MVP of the entertainment industry. Comedian, actor, writer, producer, director, documentarian – he’s done it all. He’s going to be a phenomenal Oscar host!” (via Oscars.org) When you hear the producers describe you in such a respected manner, it has to be a tremendous feeling and very much so deserved. He has won Emmys for his stand up routines and Grammys to go along with the hardware as well. Undoubtedly has to be mentioned when discussing the best comedians of this generation.
The 2016 Academy Awards will have that familiar face standing behind the podium giving us a well defined humor that resonates with audiences across the globe, hence making it a no brainer that Chris would be a great host once again for the prestigious award show.
The 88th Academy Awards are set to air February 28, 2016 on ABC in Hollywood at 7pm EST.
