Chris Rock has made a pit-stop at Maccas to fuel up before braving the stage as host of today's Academy Awards.

The actor and comedian posted a quick clip on Instagram of himself driving through McDonalds, where he ordered a fix of hotcakes and sausages to kick-start what is bound to be a monumental day.

"Where are we? #Oscars #OscarsDiet," Rock captioned the video.
