Chris Rock calls Oscars 'f***ing a**holes'
During a ceremony honouring his fellow comic and Saturday Night Live co-star Adam Sandler, Chris Rock labelled the Academy a bunch of "f—-ing a—holes."
Rock also declined to host the Oscars in 2023 after getting slapped by Will Smith.
Rock has been very close with Adam Sandler over the years.
He also recalled that Sandler was one of the first people to embrace him as a rising Black comic at the time.
During his decades-long film career, Sandler has never won or been nominated for an Academy Award.
During the 92nd Academy Awards, Sandler quipped that if he didn't get a Best Actor nomination for Uncut Gems, he'd produce a movie that was "bad on purpose just to make you all pay."
