"It will be a night that ends with a lot of drunk, disappointed people," says the second-time host.

Chris Rock is ready for 2016.

The comedian kicked off the New Year with the first promo for the 2016 Oscars, which he will be hosting on Feb. 28.

"Much like New Year's Eve," begins Rock in the commercial, "it will be a night that ends with a lot of drunk, disappointed people swearing they'll do better next year."

On Dec. 31, Rock, who first hosted the ceremony in 2005, shared the clip on Twitter, saying, "There will always be 3 constants. Death, taxes and the Oscars. Hope all 3 don't happen to me this year."

The nominations for the 88th Academy Awards will be announced Jan. 14.
