Chris Rock is ‘In Talks’ to Host the Next Oscars
Could Chris Rock be coming back to host the Academy Awards a second time?
There’s some serious Oscar buzz surrounding the comedian, and some are wondering if he’ll be hosting the 88th ceremony next year.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Rock is in talks to host the awards show, but no deal has been finalized yet. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences declined to comment to them on the news.
Although there’s nothing set in stone as far as a host, there could be more than one people leading the ceremony. Oscars co-producer David Hill told the publication in an earlier interview that there will be multiple hosts, and the show should evolve from year to year.
Meanwhile, Variety goes on to claim there will be an official announcement out shortly about Chris taking up hosting duties.
