The Rock was the Oscars’ first host choice?!

According to Dwayne, the Academy asked him first! Was he joking or trolling Kevin Hart? Is it true? We can only guess…
Ah mahalo dude, I was their first choice to host this year, and my goal was to make it the most fun and entertaining Oscars ever. We all tried hard, but couldn’t make it work since I’m shooting Jumanji. Academy and I were super bummed but maybe one day down the road 🥃 https://t.co/eiiMuBNOzb
