The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' yearly task of finding anyone decent willing to host the Oscars has this year ended in a rare disappointment for Billy Crystal. The organization today officially announced that unenviable hosting gig has fallen onto Chris Rock. He hosted once before in 2005, and in returning, he said in a statement, "I'm so glad to be hosting the Oscars. It's great to be back." Hopefully he's still saved more of such high-energy edginess for the actual show.
