    Personally i dont give a shit. I never watch any of these award shows anyway.

    Chris should tell Jada Pinkett and Spike Lee to go fuck themselves and take the gig.

    Those two hacks are the last people who should be telling Chris what he should do.

    I think this gives Chris lots of great material. I'm sure he'll mention why none of his shitty movies won Oscar awards. Chris is smart, he'll tell it like it is.

    He'll host, but make a bunch of "white people jokes" in an attempt to look like he's getting even.

    Rock won't pass it up. He has to be visible to keep promoting those shitty Adam Sandler movies he appears in.

    It's sad that Spike Lee is the best known black director and not even one of his movies is watchable. Maybe if black directors worried about just making good movies, instead of movies for black people, there would be more interest from the public. It isn't like there aren't any good black actors, there are tons.
    When I hear there's a new Spike Lee movie coming out, I automatically know there is zero chance that I will see it, but it has nothing to do with the color of his skin.

    To quit 6 weeks out would not be cool. He'll host.

    I hope not. Poor Rich Vos really needs a job and Rock usually hires him for these things. Don't put this man out of work.

    He should do the gig, then do it Seth MacFarlane style and make everyone as uncomfortable as possible just to troll them.

    For example, bring back the Los Angeles Gay Men's Chorus to do an 8-minute musical number to this great routine:



    Then, after the break, start doing OJ jokes.

    Rock peaked with his first HBO special. He's never been that good since.

    If Rock backs out, it'll be Billy Crystal again. Just like when Eddie Murphy bailed.

    And then I'm definitely skipping the broadcast.

    Rock can't back out, he has a divorce to pay for.

    the answer is: He hosts..
    he'll acknowledge the controversy with some academy degradation / jokes.
    boycotting in solidarity gains him nothing

    He won't boycott. It's all about the money. Jada's just pissed they didnt nominate will smith. If he was nominated, she wouldn't have said shit.

    They should give Jada a lifetime achievement award for being a black actress.
