— -- If you were busy ringing in the new year, you might have missed Chris Rock's first promo for the 2016 Oscars, which aired on New Year's Eve.
"Much like New Year’s Eve, it’ll be a night that ends with a lot of drunk, disappointed people swearing they’ll do better next year," the funny man joked in the 16-second promo.
"There will always be 3 constants," he wrote. "Death, taxes and the Oscars. Hope all 3 don't happen to me this year. #Oscars"
