While Chris Rock hosted the Oscars, his younger brother Tony Rock hosted the All Def Digital Awards. Russell Simmons, who is the brains behind All Def Digital, stood at the podium during the All Def Digital Movie Awards to deliver a speech on diversity in Hollywood. He talked about the Academy being more inclusive but he also talked about Black people getting out of their comfort zone as well in order to be discovered. Simmons was quick to point out that the All Def Digital Awards were not the anti-Oscars, but instead a place for others to be recognized that were not considered by the Oscars.
