Chris Rock has been tapped to host the 2014 BET Awards and no one is safe from the comedian’s wrath:
I watch the BET Awards every year. It’s one of my favorite award shows combining people from movies, sports, TV, and music. Where else can you get Rick Ross and Michelle Obama in the same room?! The BET Awards is like a party where nothing is off limits. My peers have done the show; now it’s my turn.”
This will be Rock’s first time acting as the host of the BET Awards ceremony, a night that honors African Americans and other minorities in the entertainment and sports industry. This year’s ceremony will be held at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, on June 29.
This will be the first time in over a decade that Rock will serve as a host/emcee for a major Hollywood awards event. Rock’s prior hosting experience includes the 2005 Academy Awards, and the emcee of the 1999 and 2003 MTV Video Music Awards.
The 2014 BET Awards will air live at 8/7c on June 29 on BET network.
