Chris Rock

2 of 14
It was a historic moment when Chris Rock came out on stage to host the 77th Academy Awards®. Oprah says she found herself nervous for him!

Oprah: Did you do something to calm yourself?

Chris: You know what's really funny? I yell at myself. I come out of my body and start smacking myself, "Boy, you better go out there and do that!" I become my dad.

Oprah: You've got the critics saying you were dangerous, you weren't dangerous enough. I wanted more of you in it!

Chris: Well, I'm just the host of the show. ... Maybe one day I'll be nominated and host.
