Since the Kevin Hart oscar-hosting saga started, just about everybody (besides Whoopi Goldberg in fact) has been maintaining their distance from the awards present. Now, Chris Rock has additionally chimed in to verify the Academy is aware of he desires nothing to do with the present.

While presenting an award on the New York Film Critics Circle Awards, Rock defined, as many ageing comedians do these days, how the world is much less permissive when it comes to issues which can be deemed "offensive," saying, “if it was 5 years in the past, I may say one thing actually offensive and humorous proper now, however I can’t do this anymore, so…heyyyy!” If this can be a reference to the homophobic Tweets that Kevin Hart despatched out between 2009 and 2011, Rock has missed the mark as a result of the Tweets merely aren't humorous:

Rock tried to discover a answer for the Oscars-hosting debacle by pointing to an iconic comic within the viewers on the NYFCCA: “Steve Martin is right here. You ought to host the Oscars. You’re the most effective.” Rock elaborated: “Steve Martin ought to host the Oscars! Because I’m not doing it, goddammit! You’re not getting me.” They've solely obtained a couple of month left, in order that they higher get somebody quickly.
