Well, you can let us know you thought, as we’ve rounded up the opening monologue, along with Rock’s various bits from the show. One thing everyone can agree with is that the Girl Scouts bit was pretty tired, but the segment with Rock talking to moviegoers in Compton was a winner.

Hosting is never an easy job, and Rock carried the three-hour plus Oscars as best he could. Watch his opening monologue, the Oscar movie montage, and other Rock highlights from the show below.
