The Oscars Have Their Host -- But Is There Another Surprise To Come?

But wait, weren't there supposed to be two?

After much ado, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has announced the host of the 2016 Oscars: Chris Rock.

It's Rock's second turn taking hosting duties for the prestigious movie awards show; the first time was the 2005 ceremony.

Producers David Hill and Reginald Hudlin announced Rock in a press release, singing the comedian's praises.

“Chris Rock is truly the MVP of the entertainment industry,” the suo said. “Comedian, actor, writer, producer, director, documentarian – he’s done it all. He’s going to be a phenomenal Oscar host!”

However, we can't help but remember something else that Hill and Hudlin said, just over a month ago. Weren't there supposed to be two hosts?

“There will be multiple hosts for sure – there will be two,” Hill told Entertainment Weekly. “Two is better than one.”

He had jokes, like having the second host as an emergency backup in case of a medical issue, but that's a pretty big statement to drop and then ignore just a month later.

So is there a second surprise announcement coming our way soon? Who's the other host going to be? Or did Hill and Hudlin have a change of heart?

Whether he's paired up or flying solo, we can't wait to hear what Rock comes up with for the 88th Annual Oscars on February 18, 2016.
