The Rock Claims He Was Actually The First Choice To Host The Oscars—But Nobody Can Tell If He’s Actually Joking

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson just made a really bold claim, and nobody can figure out if he’s joking.

A couple months have passed since Kevin Hart was shamed into backing out as the Oscars host following homophobic comments he had made in the past.

Hart’s apologies have been as ambiguous as the securing of a new Academy Awards host.

However, people haven’t held back from recommending their own picks for host.

One guy nominated The Rock as his choice for Oscars host.

Shockingly, The Rock responded to the fact that he was recommended.

Not only that, he told fans that he was actually originally offered the gig.

People aren’t sure if he’s kidding or not.

Also, The Rock specifically points to a Jumanji sequel as being his conflict of interest.

Dude, your man Kevin Hart was your co-star in it.

So what does Johnson mean, exactly?

We may never know, but one thing is for sure.

People want The Rock to host the Academy Awards.

Or how about a Dwayne Johnson/Jason Momoa hosting combo? I’m starting a campaign for this NOW.
