Top 10 Things Chris Rock Said At The Oscars


As the host of the 88th Academy Awards Chris Rock, did not leave any stone unturned, nor did he ignore the elephant in the room “#Oscarssowhite”.  He took to the stage and cracked jokes about everyone from Leo to the Smiths (for not showing up) and of course at the Academy.  It was the most politically correct comedy we’ve ever seen and have put together a list of the top 10 things he said throughout the night.

  1. “There’s no real reason for there to be a man and a woman category in actingIt’s not track and field. You don’t have to separate them.”
  2. “Jada protesting the Oscars is like me boycotting Rihanna’s panties… I wasn’t invited!”
  3. “This year, in the In Memoriam package, it’s just going to be black people that were shot by the cops on their way to the movies.”
  4. “Why are we protesting this Oscars? It’s the 88th academy Awards. Which means this whole no black nominees thing has happened at least 71 other times. You gotta figure that it happened in the ’50s, in the ’60s — you know like one of those years Sidney [Poitier] didn’t put out a movie … Black people didn’t protest, because we had real things to protest at the time. We were too busy being raped and lynched to care about who won best cinematographer. When your grandmother’s swinging from a tree, it’s really hard to care about best documentary foreign short.”
  5. “Hollywood is sorority racist.”
  6. “I thought about quitting… The last thing I need is to lose another job to Kevin Hart.”
  7. “It’s not about boycotting anything. We want opportunities. We want the black actors to get the same opportunities as white actors.”
  8. “You realize if they nominated hosts, I wouldn’t get this job! You’d be watching Neil Patrick Harris right now.”
  9. Rocky’s a science fiction movie.”
  10. “Welcome to the Academy Awards, also known as the White People’s Choice Awards!”
