Chris Rock wrote a very cryptic tweet about hosting the Oscars this Sunday. Rock's tweet includes the hashtag "blackout," and then a video that may remind some movie and TV buffs of The Sopranos, Cloverfield, or Poltergeist:
Since there's been increasing curiosity on how Rock will address the issue of #OscarsSoWhite this year, perhaps it has something to do with that backlash—which has led to several prominent actors boycotting the ceremony. The Academy itself has responded directly to the controversy, announcing plans to increase diversity in its membership.
It sounds like Chris Rock will certainly have a very interesting monolgue this year. Come Sunday, the world will know what #blackout means for the show.
