Chris Rock says he is not interested in hosting the Oscars again
After Kevin Hart, Chris Rock Showed No-interest in Hosting Oscars.
Who Will Be The Oscars’ Host
The count down has begun and just 47 days are left for Oscars 2019, presented by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences- Still the Academy authorities are searching for a host!
The ‘Kevin Hart Hosting Oscar’ controversy is no more buzzing around as the Philadelphian celebrity completely refuses to apologize again for the old homophobic scandal.
Instead, the public is looking forward to Chris Rock as the most anticipated 2019 Academy Awards anchor.
Chris Rock won’t Host The Oscars Anymore
But what? oh! Chris Rock also voted against this suggestion. The ‘Everybody Hates Chris’ actor has previously hosted the Oscars in 2005 and 2016. The South Carolina native confirmed his denial of conducting the 2019 Oscars on Monday, at the 84th annual New York Film Critics Circle Awards.
“If it was five years ago, I could say something really offensive and funny right now, but I can’t do that anymore, so … heyyyy!”
Surprisingly, the fifth-greatest stand-up comedian Chris Rock made an iconic appearance at New York Film Critics Circle Awards at Manhattan’s Tao Downtown. As a matter of fact, he was there to present the Best First Film Award to Bo Burnham for his movie ‘Eighth Grade’.
Chris Voted For Steve Martin As The Upcoming Academy Award Host
Instead of saying yes for the upcoming Academy awards anchoring, Chris pointed towards Steve-Martin sitting among the audience.
Steve Martin, in fact, has the honor to host the Oscars thrice, the latest one in 2010 with Alec Baldwin. Moreover, Steve is present at the ceremony to give Richard E. Grant the best-supporting-actor award for his performance in “Can You Ever Forgive Me?” — .
Chris in a nick of time campaigned for Martin for hosting the 47 days ahead Oscars.
Chris Rock is quite clear on his decision. He declared,
“Steve Martin is here. You should host the Oscars. You’re the best, Steve Martin should host the Oscars! Because I’m not doing it, goddammit! You’re not getting me!”
Will Martin Take The Charge
Subsequently, Martin did not openly acknowledge Rock’s favor on the stage. However, the actor seems moved with the crowd’s euphoric responses on Chris suggestion. Martin probably is getting ready to host the awards for the fourth time.
All that Martin utter at the eve is,
“Tonight is especially exciting for me. As a little kid, I used to get all dressed up and play New York Film Critics Circle Awards, the excitement of tonight reminds me of the birth of my child. The only difference is, I showed up for this.”
The Final Strategy Of Oscars Authorities
The Academy is still looking for an Oscars host to steer the show. However, it is believed that the upcoming Academy Awards will be conducted without any prominent host. Moreover, a pair of renowned celebrities are called at the stage to present each award turn by turn.
