Heeeeeeeee's back! Chris Rock will return to the Oscars stage as host next year, and the announcement is just the latest in a string of cool things that have happened to the biting comedian this year. Yes, his 2015 may be going a little better than yours. Sorry!
On Jan. 4, he was one of the honorees at Variety's Creative Impact Awards and "10 Directors To Watch" brunch in Palm Springs, Calif. Look at that grin.
