| Filed under: AwardzChris RockBusiness BlitzOscarsControversy

no title

The Oscars sure were entertaining last night thanks to all the glamour, Chris Rock's HIGHlarious jokes, and of course Leonardo DiCaprio winning his golden statue!

Unfortunately for the star of The Revenant, not as many people watched his big win as the Oscars had an 8-year low in ratings!

Last night's ratings were 23.1/37 which is a 6% dip from last year's show that was hosted by Neil Patrick Harris which earned 24.6/39. NPH's show happened to be the third worst the award show has done in ratings since Rock's last time hosting in 2005.

The Hugh Jackman hosted 2009 show and Jon Stewart's 2008 were the only others rated lower.

Of course, there was that whole movement to boycott the Oscars due to its lack of diversity….

What do you think?? Did people skip out on the show because of the #OscarsSoWhite controversy? Or for another reason??

On Sunday, Chris Rock hosted the 2016 Oscars where he completely shocked the audience with his edgy sense of humor!

Not surprisingly, the comedian addressed the many controversies surrounding this year's award show, notably the lack of diversity in Hollywood.

From Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith's boycott, to racism in the entertainment industry, Rock made fun of everything and anything in his opening monologue!

Later in the show, he even brought out Stacey Dash for a bit!

This is definitely one of the most memorable Oscars in history. We totally think he should host next year's ceremony!

Chris Rock, Whoopi Goldberg, Kerry Washington, & More Stars Talk Diversity At The 2016 Oscars!

no title

It looks like we're getting somewhere!

Ever since it was announced that the Oscars had all-white nominees for the second consecutive year, the #OscarsSoWhite discussion loomed over the glitz and glamour of award season.

While The Academy Of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences is diversifying its membership in an attempt to lead the way for the industry, the conversation of the lack of diversity in Hollywood held a large presence during Sunday's ceremony!

On the red carpet, Robin Roberts wasn't afraid to ask stars like Whoopi Goldberg, Mark Ruffalo, and even The Academy president herself Cheryl Boone Isaacs about the #OscarsSoWhite controversy!

But even after the show started, more shots were fired about the lack of minority representation in the entertainment biz by Chris Rock!

Check out the best quotes about diversity from awards night (below)!

Whoopi Goldberg:

"The last two years it didn't happen, but two years before that [African Americans] were everywhere. The folks who should really be screaming and shouting about this are the Asian actors, who are way underrepresented. And I think that will change because now people are starting to pay attention, but we'll see how long it lasts."

| Filed under: Chris RockOscars

Now this is the kind of skit we were hoping for with Chris Rock!

The host of the Oscars decided it'd be best for the mostly-white audience to understand what's really going on in diverse (non-Hollywood) America, so he went straight back into Compton for an incredible bit!

Poll: Do You Think Chris Should Joke About #OscarsSoWhite?

The comedian interviewed theatergoers in the predominantly black south El Lay neighborhood about their thoughts on the Academy Awards, diversity at the movies, and #OscarsSoWhite, and the results are funny and VERY enlightening!

Ch-ch-check out the eye-opening bit (above) — let's just hope that the Academy was paying close attention!!

What'd U think of the skit?!

And yeah, we've gotta side with Chrissy Teigen on this…

After Chris Rock surprised everybody by bringing Stacey Dash out for a Black History Month mention, the audience wasn't exactly sure how to react.

In fact, how Chrissy reacted (below) is pretty much exactly how the audience reacted!

Confused, scared, a little nauseous, and not entirely excited to see an opportunist poke fun at herself in a vanity move — that's exactly the feeling MOST people get when they see Stacey!!

Don't U agree with these memes (below)?!
