While Tina Fey fans might have been disappointed that she is not hosting the Oscars, the comedienne is more than happy with the Academy’s choice of Chris Rock as the emcee for the big night.

The actress spoke her mind on the 2016 Academy Awards red carpet. "Chris Rock needs no advice from me because he is the greatest living American stand-up comedian," she said. "And I think it's so great that it's Chris this year because obviously there's been a lot of controversy and there is no one I trust more to try and get humor out of it than Chris."

Meanwhile, Rock took to Instagram to share his process of tweaking his monologue until the last minute:

We loved the three Golden Globes shows when Fey and Amy Poehler served as host, and we can't wait to see what Rock brings to the table.
