Rock's Off

Chris Rock won't be back as the host of next year's Oscars telecast.

... Interesting...

Reaction to Rock's first stint as host was mixed. He drew a younger, more urban audience, but critics didn't love him. He also infuriated many self-important stars with some of his pointed jabs, including Jude Law, Tobey Maguire and the humorless Sean Penn.

... was academy member reaction enough to bump Rock off the podium? Jeez, Louise, get over yourselves...

In the running to replace Rock: Whoopi Goldberg, two-timer Steve Martin and late-night hosts Jay Leno and Conan O'Brien.

... guess after Rock, they've decided to go the safe route... how... boring...

1 other geekspeak:

  • Whoopi Goldberg is AWFUL! I thought Conan did a good job with the Emmys a few years back, so I'd give to nod to him.

    But then, what do I care? I gave up watching the Oscars years ago.
