It's two days later and do you know where your Oscar host is? And just how did Chris Rock do anyway? To be honest, I wasn't impressed. I liked the Kevin Hart joke. That's about it. The Times, I feel, was a bit kind in its review.
What didn't work? The Jada joke—particularly bringing Rihanna into it. And the thing with Stacey Dash? Painful. But the worst, certainly the most controversial, was that Asian joke.
VerySmartBrothas.com was less kind in its review, but what they want you can't get. They want an all-out attack at an event that's supposed to be a celebration. To be honest, I thought Rock attacked Hollywood too much for the #OscarsSoWhite thing. At what other event is the goal to shame the event? And for the zillionth time, I'd like to remind everyone that every time you say someone should have been nominated, you're saying someone else, someone probably in the same room as you, shouldn't have been nominated. Don't pretend you have all the slots in the world to play with.
