Chris Rock hosted the Oscars last night, and he did not disappoint!  He spoke about how he missed the majority of Girl Scouts cookie season due to preparing for last night’s big show.

Rock said, “Last night Zara, my youngest called me up and said, ‘Daddy how come we never sell the most cookies? How come Mrs. Dunn wins every year?’”  He continued, “It would mean so much to my little girl if we could beat Linda Dunn.”

Rock then brought out his daughter’s Girl Scouts troop, and encouraged the audience to buy cookies.  “I want you to reach into your millionaire pockets and I want you to buy some of my daughter’s girl scout cookies. Are we going to deny my princesses from cookies? Alright, Tina Fey, get that money, girl. Charlize Theron, yes. Matt Damon, yes. Leo, you made $30 million—come on!”

Later on in the show, Rock invited the Girl Scouts back on stage and revealed they made $65,243!  Surely, Linda Dunn won’t be able to top that amount this year.

All the stars were seen waving their money around in the audience and enjoying cookies.  Even Vice President, Joe Biden, gave Rock $20 on his way out for some cookies.

This was definitely the sweetest moment from the Oscars last night.  You can read more on the story here, and watch some unaired footage of the stars buying cookies here.  And yes, the picture below is how we all feel when we open up a box of Thin Mints.
