Chris Rock Is Still Hosting This Year’s Oscars

(via Variety)

In fact, he’s rewriting a bunch of the show after all the controversy over the last week.  

The #OscarsSoWhite topic has been hotly trending all over social media and some have called for Chris Rock to step down as host of The Oscars as a stand against the lack of diversity within The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences

However, Rock recently confirmed that he is definitely sticking around as host and won’t be wasting the opportunity to take it to whoever he chooses. The Academy has stated that they are actually backing whatever he’s going to do. In addition to the plan to introduce more diversity, this second vote of confidence in Rock is a good start for change to The Oscars.
