Chris Rock, Whoopi Goldberg, Leslie Jones Hilarious #OscarSoWhite Parody

Tapping films included in this year's Oscar nominations, Chris Rock, Whoopi Goldberg and Leslie Jones poked fun at the lack of diversity that brought back the #OscarSoWhite social storm in full force for the second year in a row.

 

Tracy Morgan sends it over the top with his portrayal of The Danish Girl, pulled off in only the way that Tracy can do.

But the moment that everyone was waiting for, was Chris Rock's monologue. And he delivered.

"Is Hollywood racist? You’re damn right. Hollywood is racist, but it ain’t that racist that you’ve grown accustomed to. Hollywood is sorority racist. It’s like, 'We like you Rhonda, but you’re not a Kappa.' That’s how Hollywood is. But things are changing. Things are changing."

A few moments later, Rock continued, "What I’m trying to say is, you know, it’s not about boycotting anything. It’s just, we want opportunity. We want black actors to get the same opportunities. That’s it. Not just once. Leo gets a great part every year and, everybody, all you guys get great parts all the time. But what about the black actors?"
