The Oscars Asked Chris Rock To Host – Here’s How He Responded
Chris Rock has kept quiet about Will Smith slapping him at the Oscars, but he has dropped a few hints about his true feelings.
Does Chris Rock want to go back to the Oscars? The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences wanted to make that happen as they reportedly asked the comedic icon to host in 20223. Rock had a pretty funny response to the Academy.
Will Chris Rock Host The Oscars In 2023?
Chris Rock says he turned down hosting the Oscars next year, saying going back to the awards ceremony would be like asking Nicole Brown Simpson “to go back to the restaurant” where she left her eyeglasses before being killed https://t.co/ZjIPuhYePO

Would you blame him? Why would you want to return to the place and to a ceremony that left you out to dry like that? It is true that Rock had the chance to press charges and declined to do so, but I think he just wants to move on, make a few jokes about it, and be done with it.

Abolish The Oscars
I don’t even think the Oscars are relevant anymore. I can’t think of the last time I wanted to see a movie because it was nominated for an Oscar.

We have to move away from this glut of awards and self-congratulation. Top Gun: Maverick will go down as the most beloved and successful movie from 2022 but it will not be nominated in any major Oscars categories. Why? Because it isn’t a “FILM.” Never mind that the work, effort, and direction that went to that movie rivals any other epic in the last 30 years. The Academy hates nothing more than a movie that regular people love.
Who Should Host The Oscars?
If the Oscars want any bit of relevancy, they need to find a host that will get people engaged in excited. There are a few comedians who could push the boundaries and make the evening funny instead of the same boring self-congratulatory love fest it always is. Here are a few people who would make great hosts.
Hart was supposed to host a few years before he was “canceled” because of some old jokes. But there isn’t a more prominent celebrity or comedian right now than Hart. He’s funny and charismatic, and he has a broad appeal to a lot of different folks.

This will never happen because of Louis’ past indiscretions, but it is hard to think of a funnier comic and someone who could better pinpoint the absurdity of fame.

Probably the safest pick you can imagine. Not a single person would object to him. Anodyne to the point of almost being boring.
