Chris Rock is Hosting the 2016 Oscars

Chris Rock

According to sources within the production of the 88th Academy Awards, Chris Rock will be the show’s next host. The decision is expected to be formally announced October 20th.

The Academy initially looked at pairing Rock, who also hosted in 2005, with someone else. After considering Jimmy Fallon, Ellen DeGeneres and Amy Schumer – and after Schumer turned down the hosting duties – the Oscars are sticking to their typical method of having just one master of ceremonies. A call to Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences CEO Dawn Hudson for comment was not returned.

As you’ll remember, the ceremony last went with two hosts in 2011 (James Franco and Anne Hathaway), and people are still finding ways to make jokes about it to this day. Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin co-hosted the Oscars in 2010, but no one seems too keen on making fun of that one.

The 2016 Oscars will take place February 28, and the only other thing I can promise you is that the movie you like isn’t going to win Best Picture.
