Chris Rock Declines Offer To Host Emmy Awards After Oscars Incident

Chris Rock turned out to be one of the top choices to host Emmy Awards after his Oscars 2022 gig made headlines thanks to Will Smith's slap.

According to Deadline, the comedian and Dwayne Johnson were contacted by the prestigious show organisers to helm the Primetime Emmy Awards in September.

However, the sources dished to the outlet that Rock, who previously hosted the Oscars in 2005 and 2016, refused to do the honours once again.

The comedian also solidly seems unlikely to front the star-studded show, slated to air on Sunday, September 12 on NBC.

The nominations for the show will be unveiled on July 12 after which fans can start voting from then to July 27.

Will Smith was banned from Oscars for the next ten years after he slapped Rock at the 94th Academy Awards for making fun of Jada Pinkett Smith’s alopecia.

Rock prefers not to be put in that position again, at least not yet.
