Through his opening monologue, skits and even selling Girl Scout cookies, Rock entertained the Hollywood crowd.

Here are his best moments as an Oscars host:

Interviews Outside of a Compton Movie Theater

In a bit of a flip, Rock stood outside of a movie theater in Compton, California to ask patrons their thoughts on this year's Oscar-nominated films. In a hilarious sketch, many of those interviewed had never heard of the films. Of course those interviewed had all seen "Straight Outta Compton," a film that only received a nod for Best Original Screenplay.

His Black History Month Minute Sketch Narrated by Angela Bassett

Since the Oscars are during the month of February -- also known as Black History Month -- Rock decided to pay homage to one actor in this sketch. It was narrated by Oscar-nominated actress Angela Bassett, but you'll have to watch and see why this one is so funny.

His Comments on Will and Jada Pinkett Smith

Two stars who boycotted this year's Oscars were Jada Pinkett Smith and her husband, Will Smith. And although Rock addressed the lack of diversity in Oscar nominees all show long, he didn't take it easy on the Smiths. During his opening monologue he addressed Pinkett Smith, saying the Oscars isn't "an invitation I would turn down," which got tons of laughs.

When He Sold Girl Scout Cookies to the Crowd

Rock helped out his two daughters, Zahra and Lola, by selling Girl Scout cookies to the crowd. Vice President Joe Biden, John Legend and Kate Winslet were among the stars who bought cookies. Later in the show, Rock said he raised more than $65,000 for his daughters.

Wasn't as hard as I thought it would be... #oscars

Public Enemy's "Fight the Power"

Rock opened the show and closed the show with Public Enemy's 1990 song, "Fight the Power." The song, which was featured in Spike Lee's film, "Do the Right Thing," is anti-establishment. In opening and closing the show with such a powerful song, it was the comedian's way of setting the tone and again, addressing the lack of diversity in the show's nominees.
