Chris Rock was the best awards
show host ever at the BET Awards
on June 29, and I am actively going
to start a campaign that he host
every awards show ever. Let me
count the ways!
Chris Rock hosted the BET Awards
on June 29 and totally killed it, with-
out question, without exaggeration.
At the Nokia Theater (Los Angeles)---
the same venue where Ellen
DeGeneres hosted the Oscars---Chris
made the time fly by with an opening
monologue that had the crowd in
stitches, and with various jokes,
sketches, and even disses ---looking
at you, Chris Brown---that kept the
crowd on their toes.
The concept of an awards "season"
is kind of a joke at this point---calling
it a "season" implies an end at some
point; it seems like every week there
is a new awards show which pats the
same artistes on the back over and
However, the BET Awards are dif-
ferent---honouring the best in black
entertainment, Chris Rock had the
opportunity to host an awards show
that is unique and special to begin
with, which he turned into an
absolutely hilarious three-and-a-half
hours that flew by in a second!
His opening monologue was totally
hilarious---in it, he talked about the
past year in black culture. Of course,
Solange s attack on Jay Z was brought
up, and Rock mentioned how a lot of
people were surprised that Jay Z didn t
hit back. However, Jay Z can t hit
Solange, according to Rock, because
this is The Blueprint 3 Jay Z.
"Blueprint 3 Jay Z is a business-
man," said Rock, "he has a meeting
with Nabisco in the morning. If
Solange had attacked Reasonable
Doubt Jay Z, that elevator would have
been filled with nothing but lipstick,
blood and weave."
He also poked fun at Oprah for her
performance in The Butler, and how
she must have needed coaching to
learn how to act like a poor person.
"What s a spatula? Oprah always
thought it was a money-flipper," joked
Rock. If you make a movie about civil
rights and white people like it, Rock
says, it s not a good civil rights movie.
As he put it, you don t see Germans
walking out of Holocaust films talking
about how great they are.
And it wouldn t be a monologue
about the biggest black news of the
year without mentioning Donald Ster-
ling, "racist and all-around awful per-
son," according to Chris, it wasn t
really a surprise that an 80-year-old
white man was racist; the first black
man that Donald ever met, he got for
Rock added that Sterling was right
in chastising his girl friend for speak-
ing to black NBA players, said he
wouldn t want his girlfriend going out
black NBA players either.
Rock s is the kind of humor that
flies at the BET Awards, and which
fell flat at the Oscars when he hosted
in 2005. It s not that Rock was a bad
host, it s that he needs the right venue.
The BET Awards are a fun time filled
with amazing fashion, music, and
dance, and while the show was well-
produced and went off without a
hitch, it never took itself overly seri-
ously, and was a true celebration.
Later in the show, viewers were
treated to a taped segment that saw
Rock at a monster truck rally filled
with, well, the kind of people you d
expect to be at a monster truck rally;
that is, not overly familiar with black
culture. Confronted with a cardboard
cut-out of Rick Ross, one man
thought it was Mr T.
When Rock asked him if he knew
what Kwanzaa was, the man
demurred once more, and Rock told
him that Rick Ross is black Santa
Claus. I mean, he s just the best.
I won t list every one of Rock s stel-
lar jokes, but the celebs in attendance
weren t immune to his jabs---from
Paris Hilton to Justin Bieber to Chris
Brown, nobody was safe. They asked
for it, really.
This was Rock s first time hosting
the BET Awards, and judging by his
performance for the 2014 edition, he
clearly needs to be doing it every year.
And hosting everything every year---
stuffy audience members at the
Oscars be damned.
