Chris Rock has leaked a few images of skits he plans to carry out at the 2016 Oscars next Sunday night. The 51-year-old comedian returns as the Master of Ceremonies, his second time since 2005.

People reports that Rock is keeping a poker face about what’s ahead for the Academy Awards overall, but he did release some images on social media of a costume he’ll be wearing.

A Twitter post by Chris Rock shows the host wearing an astronaut uniform. He appears to be spoofing Best Picture nominee, “The Martian,” which stars Best Lead Actor nominee, Matt Damon. The caption reads: “Getting my outfit together.”

In another photo, Rock poses next to Kristen Wiig and director, J.J. Abrams, in a green set-up area. The caption reads: “Almost showtime.”

It’s unknown what else Chris Rock has up his sleeve for the 2016 Oscars next Sunday. Speculations abound suggest it’ll be quite a ride viewers will take given the lack of diversity for this year’s nominees. Rock is known for his bold stance and outspokenness about disparity of African-Americans. He takes no prisoners in his approach and lets the chips fall where they may.

Rock’s original tweet posted as the #OscarsSoWhite hashtag took off is still seen at the very top of his Twitter feed. It reads: “The #Oscars. The White BET Awards.”

So far nothing about race has been released by the academy or Rock as awards night nears. Viewers anticipate a night full of shocking surprises splashed with a bit of controversy.

Rest assured there will be some surprises and shocking lines come from Chris Rock as the host of this year’s Academy Awards.

The 88th Academy Awards will air on ABC at 7 p.m., ET, and 4 p.m, PT.
