Chris Rock

Academy Awards 2016 host Chris Rock will not join A-list celebrities who are calling for a boycott of the Oscar Awards live telecast on February 28.

Celebs such as Jada Pinkett-Smith, 44, and Spike Lee, 58, are calling for other actors to join their boycott after the Academy failed to nominate a single nonwhite actor for a major award 2 years in a row.

Jada, whose husband Will Smith was passed over for the Best Actor nomination, addressed Rock, 50, directly in a video posted to Facebook.com.

“Chris, I will not be at the Academy Awards, and I won’t be watching, but I can’t think of a better man to do the job at hand this year than you, my friend. Good luck.”

Jada Pinkett-Smith

In an earlier post, Jada wrote:

“At the Oscars...people of color are always welcomed to give out awards...even entertain, but we are rarely recognized for our artistic accomplishments. Should people of color refrain from participating all together? People can only treat us in the way in which we allow. With much respect in the midst of deep disappointment, J.”

Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences president Cheryl Boone Isaacs, who is black, released a statement via Twitter.com stating the Academy is committed to bringing diversity to the awards -- just not this year.

Rock's only public response to the growing backlash against the Oscars was to joke via Twitter.com that the Oscars were the white version of the BET Awards.

But according to gossip blog Naughty Gossip, “Chris is under extreme pressure to pull out. Many leaders in the black community think he would help progress be made if he quits his hosting job.”

Daytime talk show Diva Wendy Williams and actress Janet Hubert (Fresh Prince of Bel Air) criticized Jada for her self-serving protest.

"Girl please, why are you always speaking for your man?" Hubert said in a video posted on Facebook.com. "It was the best performance of his career, which says this is the best performance HE has ever done, not necessarily academy worthy."

    He is in a complicated position.

    Is there a go fund me account, for the money them Oscar people are going to sue Chris for ?
    We never think beyond the moment

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    The Smiths are black now?

  • LibraGirlonly

    They will probably black ball him

  • MsVAllDay

    Of course not! He needs a check.

  • YOUR man chose BSweet #ohwell

    Chris has a job to do. I'm not mad if he does it.

    I'm not a movie buff so I can't comment on whether us colorless should've been in the runnings.

  • YOUR man chose BSweet #ohwell

    In other news, I'm at the park and this lady is giving head to somebody's boyfriend or husband.

  • PouredInk Prod

    if he does he will never make another dime again, will jada pay his bills? black people stay worried about the wrong shit! fuck them oscars, people dont have water Jada!

  • Hell_On_Heelz

    I agree with his decision. Chris Rock is known for not giving a -----!!! He'll bring attention to the matter!!! I just need for us to start standing for things with substance! Yes, performing arts are one of our cores but there's so much injustices occurring DAILY....

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Make that $$ Chris Rock! I'd rather he do it and make everybody uncomfortable LOL.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Out in the open?!???!

  • harley_quinn2.0

    I didn't think he would. This is probably good material for his monologue. I'm a Chris Rock fan but honestly I have never been interested in watching the Oscars. A bunch of snobby actors together in one room while people sing their praises and kiss their arse. I'll pass ?.

  • Too Many Colors

    Chris is in the middle of a divorce. He need that money.

    Chris, get your check. This is a pissing contest. Take your proceeds and make another 'Good Hair', 'Dark Girls', etc. Keep bringing awareness thru entertainment.

    That's why I like Chris, he knows he's an entertainer. Sometimes comedians have a few screws loose and get it twisted. You can't do nothing broke.

    If Will would have been nominated would she have boycotted for all the people who were not nominated? That was the best question

  • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    It's not too cold for that where you live? Frostbite all on the...

  • MissyJ

    I support those that are boycotting, I won't watch. And I support those that are not boycotting, like Chris who has a job to do. I get where folks are coming from, its unfathomable that not one black actor was worthy of a nomination. Of ALL the movies, not just the ones we know about not one black actor gave an outstanding performance? C'mon man!

    Idris deserved a nom for Beasts. Will for Concussion, I didn't see it but his accent was killing me in the commercial I said then, leave the accents to Don Cheadle ?? so I don't believe his performance was worth a nod.

  • DJ

    ? ??

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Paul Mooney would have folks sweating in their boots. Funny as heyul but them folks can't handle it. .

  • mela.reign77

    Now I agree if you feel so strongly about something do what needs to be done. However if you don't care either way as long as you're getting a check then that's your prerogative also. Chris going through a divorce, child support and so more ish! Chris would probably host a pie eating contest if them coins are right. Lmbo!

  • harley_quinn2.0

    I think that's what he will do

  • shaybytheway

    As he should not. We can't be too emotional about this. Not one of us will help if he is sued for breaking a contract. Let him go and make a lot of people uncomfortable.

  • AnonymousRose

    I know he would thats why i said it...........He been killing white folks, and will stay on their azz the entire night

  • YOUR man chose BSweet #ohwell

    They are in the car. I'm in my car.

  • YOUR man chose BSweet #ohwell

    I'm in NC they are in the car so it's a bit warmer there.

  • MissyJ

    Oh and lemme do the education for the last time Will and Jada attended Image Awards.... Cause Jada talmbout let's do our own and celebrate our own... Bish we already do that and Anthony Anderson sang that great song saying the same damn thang last year... So here's the trophy for the Too Late 2016 Award

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Idris was so good in that role he turned me off completely ??...I will never look at him the same again ????.

  • Use_Coasters_aka_Sol_88

    I'm still stuck on the fact she hyphenated her name like anyone gave a damn about the Pinkette...

    buuuuuuuut Chris shouldn't pull out.
    He should do the show & make them feel uncomfortable.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    I would've knocked on the window and yelled hey there's children around you filthy animals ??

    I saw some teenagers getting busy in a car in front of my neighbors house on my way to work once. Maybe if they were in the backseat or had tinted windows I wouldn't have noticed. **shrugs**

  • YOUR man chose BSweet #ohwell

    The guy was looking at me everytime I looked around. There was nobody in the park but me and them.

  • AnonymousRose

    hi Jada, Black people are the hardest people to come together for anything, we don't own anything, we don't make no money not even a bank to fund a black business...Blacks are just trying to survive, they understand they have no power. and no matter what we do, we will finish last, One DAY my people will rise again, we will have the power, we will be the most intelligent , we will love our own, we will stand for us, no matter who come against us, ONE
    DAY we will, Jada one day....but its just not TODAY, umm kkk

  • http://www.sandrarose.com Django the God

    Her acting in this video is bad. Just talk normal. You on the couch doing a public service announcement. Giving a Dr. King speech. I like the way Chris Rock is handling himself.

  • YOUR man chose BSweet #ohwell

    You could barely tell but all of a sudden, she disappeared. Then I saw her fingers in his mouth.

  • AnonymousRose

    whats wrong with a hyphen in your name? serious question?

  • mela.reign77

    IKR.. I just can't look at him the same. Same goes for Lawrence Fisburne, Danny Glover and Monique. They played the heck out of them roles!

  • harley_quinn2.0

    LOL I remember one award show I forgot which one he was going off on Diana Ross. She wasn't there but Tracee was ?

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Looking at you how??

  • AnonymousRose

    lmbooo.. that man is crazy

  • harley_quinn2.0

    I understand Monique, but why Ike and Mista?

  • Cricket404

    I don't like Chris Rock, but I wouldn't ask him not to do what he agreed to. Will's performance was sub-par, personally I didn't care for it much. Idris Elba was the only actor snubbed, the Commandant looked good! and was great as Supporting Actor.

  • the guest

    Chris Rock IS BOYCOTTING by hosting. The Oscars might send him home mid monologue cause Lord knows he got something waiting for their racist behinds.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    I think she kept the maiden name because it mattered to HER.

  • nekkkyj

    Is any of his movies worth seeing maybe he needs to pick better roles to play

  • YOUR man chose BSweet #ohwell

    I don't how to describe it. I could tell he was looking at me. Everytime I turned he was. Maybe he wanted me to leave.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Or join in!!! LOL!

  • mzwhang90210

    IMO Chris can make much more of a statement by hosting.
    You KNOW he will have some quips, jabs etc.

    Not only that...but I agree with those who say the ONLY reason Jada is up in arms is because Will wasn't nominated. If he HAD been..she'd be picking out a dress.
    Like Aunt Viv said...Black actors not attending the Oscars will do what? Yt does NOT care...they'll give those seats away so fast!!!
    A better remedy would be to lobby for more minority actors in major roles.

  • YOUR man chose BSweet #ohwell

    No, just no.

  • the guest

    That's just who'll Chris will be channeling. The Oscars are going to be fire this year and I can't wait.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Get money ?

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Amen ?

  • the guest

    Not just not one black actor. Not ONE SINGLE BLACK PERSON in every category. Sounds like Hollywood did the boycotting and deserves to be boycotted right back. And I will watch Chris represent.

  • mzwhang90210

    @Missy J....quick question, didn't I see you tell another poster that you were white not too long ago????
    I remember reading a post and somebody said something about you acting like a typical Black woman, and your response was something like "See I'm not even Black, I'm White."
    You were joking perhaps???

  • YOUR man chose BSweet #ohwell

    She was at the park alone. Then a car pulled up and the person in it got in her car. Well that's all she wrote after that. Guess they are getting it in before the park closes and they gotta go home.

  • Too Many Colors

    Should have gave him thumbs up

  • Buttercup

    Whaaaaat? I thought missyJ was a cute little brown girl with dimples and clean knees.

  • Jennifer Hudson’s Knees

    Will & Jada need to be worried about their twilight zone kids

  • YOUR man chose BSweet #ohwell

    I guess that's why they went to the park near closing when the sun was going down.

    Which reminds me next time I get some, maybe it should be in public.

    People don't realize that a) Chris probably has a contract that he can't break; b) he's getting paid $$$MMMILLLIONS$$$ of dollars to do the show and c) he's been and is one of the writers of the Oscars.
    Give him a break.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    All that right there sounds like they are having an affair or something. Hmmm...

  • mzwhang90210

    Nurp.

  • stav

    Jada has not just figured this out , This is all because her husband was not nominated. I did not see the movie , however he is not , nor has he ever been a good actor. Blacks and whites alike look to these awards to validate them, when we all know they don't mean squat. This has been the way of Hollywood for decades , why is she and others pretending this is all new? That's the racist, backstabbing, phony ,devilish industry you've put yourselves in. Look how many people have won the Best Actor/Actress award and you don't see them in jack(that's worthy of watching) . ex. Adrien Brody, Halle Berry, Jaime Fox, Natalie Portman, Reese Witherspoon. These awards are not a guarantee that you will continue to work , or be in really good movies. Blacks should certainly stop looking for validation from those that really could care less about them, and that only cares about how much they can make off of them.

  • YOUR man chose BSweet #ohwell

    Absolutely, that's why I said somebody's boyfriend or husband because he thought he wasn't hers apparently.

    Well, if they happen to need a last minute "Rent-a-Negro" to fill in, they need look no further than Kevin Hart. When I comes to bowing and scraping for Hollywood acceptance, even Stepin Fetchit couldn't hold a candle to Hart. Mr. "I'll drag dark-skinned black women through the mud to get a laugh, but white gays are off limits" will rush to fill in should Rock abdicate.

  • Meme81

    He should either do the gig and show his ENTIRE black behind OR, do the gig, and then when the spotlight's on afterwards, throw shade for days on social media or tv. At least that's what I would do. It'd be helpful to have a few accounts set up beforehand.

  • Afiya

    I see you Chris, hanging right *winkwink*

  • barbeez

    Quite a few Blacks have won over the last several years. I mean...Lupita did nothing but get whipped in 12 years a Slave yet she won. We can't cry every time somebody Black is not nominated. It's the stupid Oscars. Furthermore, Will is not a great actor...he is...well he was a sex symbol. Shut up Jada ...I will be watching Chris Rock and all the other nominees.

  • Baddiebeymyfav??????????????

    His ? Is in a complicated position...

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Last year we watched Glory, John legend, Common fire up the stage. The year before it was Lupita and her slave flick be honored, and before that it The Help, Octavia Spencer won an Oscar, and Viola Davis also nominated, and a few years back it was Mo'Nique and Jennifer Hudson winning. There will always Oscar snubs, flicks and performances that people view as Oscar-worthy, but didn't get a nod, let alone a win! Jada and no one else thought it was wrong that Ledisi didn't take the stage last Oscar show for a film role playing Mahalia Jackson in Glory to sing Precious Lord. A MLK film that many school kids were taken to see, and how it could have been interpreted seeing a more popular singer onstage, instead of Ledisi. This issue, BLM and other platforms serve a very limited group or set of individuals. Where is the outcry (rich celebrities) for Flint Michigan, how come no one is demanding prison for the individuals responsible? Auntie Viv is a bitter woman, but she's right with her video rant on this topic, they're bigger problems in the world! How many times was Denzel passed over for Best Leading Actor before he finally won? Diana Ross and Angela Bassett were robbed, along with Laurence Fishburn, IMO. It happens, and why give the Oscars this much power, really? I think they did it for this very reason. Many people say they will watch now just because of the boycott rant, so they still win!

  • Slickone

    Exactly Chris is smart the entire crowd face will be red once he's done! !! Especially if he is the only black person there. I cannot wait to hear about it the next day because I will not be watching same as every year.

    Chris Rock is going to kill it, especially if, like you said, he's the only black person there. Don't let him be the only black person there. He's going to make history with his monologue.

  • LordeAmbler

    The Grammys awarded those white boys over Kendrick and gave iggy a nomination. These award shows aren't designed for black. That's exactly what Kanye said before beyonce took her token ass up there and congratulated swift. Lmao now Jada mad. I don't know many black people that watch the show. Boycott the networks showing the show. Trust me rating will def change how awards are given out.

  • LordeAmbler

    He already said before the oscars look like the million white man March. Lmao.

  • LordeAmbler

    Exactly.

  • Taylordanes

    Can Jada speak out about the water in Flint ?

  • BrittBrat2005

    Thats basically what Jada saying... Blacks should do for they own(movies,production,clothing, etc) stop letting others races coming in and take things from blacks people and making them their own. That's what I got from the video.. I guess the Smith's finally got their heads out their assets..

  • LordeAmbler

    The truth always comes out.

  • LordeAmbler

    But they the biggest crooks. Her husband deserved to be reminded he just another ngga. He blacklisted auntviv when she tried to tell him the actors should be getting paid more on belair. Then lied on that lady all these years about her being jealous of him. Sit down now after this they are gonna be blacklisted unless they direct their own. Will been so far up white people tail he don't know how to make movies about black people. With black love. His leading ladies are always Hispanic. What george clooney said was right but the decision don't happen at the award show. The award show is the after affect.

  • LordeAmbler

    Exactly. Worried about some white award.

    No let him host. He is going to read their lily white azzes for filth. They already know it's coming. What's the worse that could happen. Not ask him back to host? I doubt it. Look at the major fuc up by Steve Harvey with the Ms. Universe Pagent. He signed a lucrative deal to continue To be the M-Cee. And them sprites don't care with the Academy awards what we think. They did the same shat last year.

    I stopped watching the Oscars after Denzel and Halle won. Haven't seen that shat since and don't care too.

    Sell your soul, Chris. First, you disown the young African girl you and your ex-wife adopted, in attempts to not pay child support. We know you cheated on your beautiful, educated ex-wife with white trash, so we're certain you're bedding white trash in her absence. Now, you're hosting the Oscars to feed your own ego, collect a check, and garner the attention of your white audience so they'll keep supporting your career. Paul Mooney you are not. Let's see if my support lands anywhere in the vicinity of another Chris Rock project.

    I'm glad Chris Rock is going. Black people done lost they heads. Bunch of cry babies be ready shoot another black man or woman one minute and then crying RACISM the NEXT. Don't nobody take y'all crazy people serious.

    Leave Chris alone! He probably needs that $25k hosting fee to pay his bills!

  • Decked Out

    I think Chris Rock needs that CHECK and needs that JOB. Are any Black Actors going to reciprocate his LOSTS?

  • what?why

    Well Jada, Will was not that impressive in that role ... don't fret something else will come along.

    If Chris wants to host the show, that's his choice, but if he's desperate for a measly 25k... I think that's the bigger story!

  • Mrs. ??????????

    Chris shouldn't listen to anything Jada has to say. She is upset Will didn't get nominated, that doesn't have anything to do with black people in general.

    XD

    He is in a Messy DIVORCE is what my thoughts were.

    It's funny how quickly "we" are willing to dismiss the achievements/accomplishments of our own. Spike Lee is an amazing producer/director, several white producers/actors have even attested to this (I know how important it is to be validated by white people). Although Will Smith sounded like he was gargling hot rocks to me, several of my Pilgrim co-workers commented on how amazing the film was and how great he was in it. Michael Moore has also stepped UP and said that he was in agreement with Spike and Jada. He spoke about the blatant racism and segregation in Hollywood last night on MSNBC.

    To say that Will Smith's performance wasn't worthy of an Oscar is to presume that every other film that was nominated IS worthy of an Oscar.

    Good for Chris! Don't let others opinions influence you in any way, especially Jada and Spike Lee. They are both confused morons. Jada is obviously pissed because Will's movie bombed at the box office. That movie SUCKED A$$ so let's just keep it 100% real.

  • Guest who

    Why should he boycott because Jada and Spike in their feelings? Chris is going to be funny and clowning those white throughout the whole show and I will tune in just for that. He's going to say our next presenter to give an award to another white person.

    Stand for something or fall for anything. Note to Wendy: this is long overdue however it had to happen it has happened, the Oscars are RACIST and they needed to be called out so whatever her motivation, I don't care.

  • don juan

    Typical Black response.

  • don juan

    Exactly

    I would still get my check. It is Hollywood. What did Jada expected.

    Vivica A Fox and certain other actors knows about the situation. You get your money and invest in your own black movie movement.

    I love Vivica for this.

    Jada, I love you but you have to take care of your kids, they turning your kids into.... I'll stop here but I know she gets the point (if she reads us)

    Don't be ashamed. Nothing wrong with looking at an ?. ?I'm just shocked that Mr Rock is packing that much meat?.??#Hestilluglytho.?

    The fact that his penis is visible is awful. These guys act like good underwear doesn't exist.

    Chris Rock should host the Oscar's. Make that BIG paycheck. Remember, the show is live. When the camera starts rolling, he walks out on the stage, and the mic is on full blast . . .all hell is going to break out! I believe Chris'monologue will do more than just pinch some nerve's or rattle some 'ol white Hollywood bones. Let him have the mic on his terms. He will say exactly what needs to be said on our (Black folks) behalf to the Academy Awards Committee. So Chris, have your megaphone. Because they might try to cut your mic off. "You Go Boy!"
