The hype for this years Oscars was for all the wrong reasons and host Chris Rock didn’t pull any punches with his nearly-twelve minute long opening monologue. Almost all of his jokes involved the white Oscar’s controversy. Rock’s zingers included jabs like “If they nominated hosts, I wouldn’t even get this job. Y’all would be watching Neil Patrick Harris right now.”
He also made incredibly biting comments about Jada Pinkett Smith and her husband Will Smith, both of whom publicly boycotted the show after feeling Will’s performance in Concussion had been snubbed. It’s also not fair that Will was paid $20 million for Wild Wild West….”
Here is the full monologue from last night. If you are easily offended you might want to boycott this video!
