Chris Rock Confirmed To Host The 2016 Oscars

In: Donovan, Movies, TV Shows

After much speculation, it’s confirmed that Chris Rock will host the 88th Academy Awards. It marks the second time the 50-year-old comedian has hosted the annual event. He previously held court in 2005 for the 77th Oscars telecast.

“I’m so glad to be hosting the Oscars,” said Rock. “It’s great to be back.”

Rock follows in the recent footsteps of Neil Patrick Harris (2015), Ellen DeGeneres (2014) and Seth MacFarlane (2013). Check out below the Saturday Night Live alum’s opening monologue from his first stint as Oscar host.

“Chris Rock is truly the MVP of the entertainment industry,” Academy Awards producers David Hill and Reginald Hudlin said in a statement. “Comedian, actor, writer, producer, director, documentarian — he’s done it all. He’s going to be a phenomenal Oscar host!”

This holiday season spend it with Bill Murray over on Netflix. The 65-year-old actor has assembled a star-studded roster for A Very Murray Christmas. It also reunites him with his Lost In Translation director Sofia Coppola. The two along with Mitch Blazer wrote the special with Sofia sitting in the director’s chair.

A Very Murray Christmas is billed as a “homage to the classic variety show featuring Bill Murray playing himself, as he worries no one will show up to his TV show due to a terrible snow storm in New York City.”

Joining him for the festive good time are Chris Rock, George Clooney, Michael Cera, Maya Rudolph, Amy Poehler, Jason Schwartzman and Miley Cyrus. The latter duets with Murray on “Let It Snow.

A Very Murray Christmas begins streaming on Netflix on December 4. Watch the teaser trailer below.

Numerous fans felt a little gypped by the original edit of “Bitch I’m Madonna.” With all the marquee names participating, I, like many, assumed Beyonce, Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus would’ve been featured more than just a couple of seconds in the Jonas Akerlund-directed clip. Pretty much all they did was lip sync just one line. Does her new visual rectify that faux pas?

Madonna ditches the partygoers and her Asian lady backup dancers in the Sander Kleinenberg remix video edit. Instead, the 56-year-old icon is shown gyrating and hair flipping in a room solo while grainy footage of Kanye West, Rita Ora, Chris Rock, Diplo, Nicki Minaj and the aforementioned names are edited in between. The cameos are a bit longer but not by much. Check out the video remix edit below.

Taking a page from Taylor Swift’s playbook, Madonna enlists her famous friends for her star-studded visual “Bitch I’m Madonna.” Unlike Swift’s “Bad Blood” clip though, the guest stars in the video seem like an afterthought.

With exception to Rita Ora, Chris Rock and Diplo, the likes of Beyonce, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj and Miley Cyrus appear to have taped their cameos after Jonas Akerlund finished directing the clip.

Not surprisingly, the clip debuted exclusively on Tidal. If you recall, Madonna made headlines when she lifted her leg on the table while giving her signature.

While “Bad Blood” is a far superior clip, Madge’s latest is still a playful little romp. Lots of colorful and fun fashion abound. Check out it below before Jay-Z’s minions take it down.

After 33 years on late night television, 22 of which at the helm of The Late Show on CBS, David Letterman hosted his final show. Leading up to his swan song, the 68-year-old host welcomed some of his most notable guests including Julia Roberts, Oprah Winfrey, Adam Sandler, Tom Hanks and George Clooney to name a few. However, for his final hour, Letterman went for a relatively subdued approach, as compared to Jay Leno and Chelsea Handler’s send-offs.

It mostly consisted of clip montages from his over 6,000+ shows. The only celebrities that showed up did so to deliver his final Top 10 List, “Top 10 things I’ve always wanted to say to Dave.” Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin, Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock and six others participated.

He was also joined by President Obama and former presidents in a pre-taped segment for the intro. It all ended with the Foo Fighters sending Letterman off to the sunset. Who knew David was such a fan of the Dave Grohl-fronted band.

Check out his final Top 10 list below, along with his final monologue, farewell and more clips.

With back-to-back box office disappoints courtesy of Jack & Jill and That’s My Boy, it’s only natural Adam Sandler film a sequel to his last hit. Grown Ups 2 reunites Kevin James, Chris Rock and David Spade back with Sandler. Once again the foursome act like adolescent teens at summer camp. I have to admit that I sorta enjoyed the first one and the trailer looks like the same sort of silly antics are in store. How else would you describe a deer peeing in Sandler’s face?

As entertaining as that is, the trailer is all about the cameos. Taylor Lautner and his mob of angry frat boys force Sandler and the guys to strip down and cliff jump. It results with Spade yelling “I was inside you” to one of the guys. Andy Samberg pops up as a flamboyant male cheerleader. The former SNL comedian does his best Tawny Kitean impersonation, spreading his “cherry pie” all over a car windshield. Check out their appearances along with Shaquille O’Neal’s below.

As promised, after The Oscars last night Jimmy Kimmel debuted his Movie: The Movie: 2V trailer and in case you missed it, we’ve got it for you to check out below. The hilarious movie parody video features 21 celebrities and tells the epic story of a world threatened by sexy vampires, sexy zombies, sexy mummies, and sexy leprechauns.

The cast includes: Rachel Weisz, Armie Hammer, Topher Grace, Jessica Chastain, Jude Law, Gerard Butler, Bryan Cranston, John Krasinski, Oprah Winfrey, Bradley Cooper, Kerry Washington, Guillermo Rodriguez, Jason Schwartzman, Chris Rock, Salma Hayek, Bruno Mars, Amanda Seyfried, Channing Tatum, Samuel L. Jackson, Wolf Blitzer, and even Matt Damon.

Kimmel plays the man who leads the charge of people who fight to stop the Sexpocalypse. Some of my favorite moments include when Kimmel calls Oprah (who plays the president) and she hangs up on him, when Matt Damon is told to pretend he’s eating a big sandwich but they really just want him to look like he’s giving head, and when Kimmel shouts, “Release the Tatum!” and a giant Channing Tatum comes out that fights the sexy monsters by thrusting from his manhood. Watch the epic and hilarious video below.

A week after the Sandy Hook shootings in Newtown, Connecticut, two videos from very opposing camps hit the internet. First you have celebrities asking in a PSA, “How many more colleges? How many more classrooms? How many more movie theaters? How many more house of faith? How many more shopping malls? How many more street corners?” Demand A Plan is a grassroots initiative to mobilize Americans to DEMAND a plan to end gun violence from Congress and President Obama. Reese Witherspoon, Beyonce, Michelle Williams, Selena Gomez, John Hamm, Jennifer Aniston, Kate Hudson and many, many more lend their voices to the PSA.

Coincidentally on the same day, National Rifle Association president Wayne LaPierre, held a live press conference. LaPierre claims the media is to blame for the shootings and not guns. He explains that the entertainment industry makes “the filthiest form of pornography,” citing violent music videos and films Natural Born Killers and American Psycho. He further goes on to say that “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.” His most controversial comment that has celebrities on Twitter in a tizzy is his claim that had armed guards been at Sandy Hook, innocent lives would’ve been spared that day. Check out both vids below.
