The comedian is set to host the Oscars for the second time this Sunday. While the lack of diversity surrounding the Academy Awards has caused controversy throughout the entertainment industry, Rock has remained tight-lipped on what he has planned for the big night. Rock previously took on the hosting duties in 2005.

Rock showed a bit of comedic relief while counting down three reasons to watch the Oscars on Instagram, which included, “presenter cleavage,” the in-memoriam section and potential cursing.

Rock will be hitting the red carpet ahead of the show most likely in a pair of patent leather dress shoes. The actor is fan of black sneakers and is seen at countless premieres and events wearing the go-to style. Rock has been spotted in black Balenciaga sneakers on multiple occasions and often opts for Nike and Adidas.
