This morning,the nominees were announced

for the 89th Academy Awards.

And in contrastwith last year's slate

that provoked theOscars So White hashtag,

this year features a diverse setof nominees,

including a recordsix black actors.

Then again... then again,

a record-tying 14 nominationsalso went to La La Land,

which is pretty much the whitest(bleep) movie imaginable.

-(laughter)-I haven't seen it.

I don't know.

It just doesn't seem likea movie I'm gonna see, but...

From what I hear--I'm just piecing this together--

but I thinkit's about Ryan Gosling

explaining jazz to Emma Stone,and I assume

includes such songs as,

"I Brought My Own Cloth Bagto Whole Foods,"

and "Extra Mild Salsa, Please."

The only thing whiterthan La La Land

would be a biopic aboutthe invention of mayonnaise,


...incidentallyis in the works, you guys.

Daniel Day-Lewis is gonna beamazing in this movie.


He pretended to be mayonnaisefor, like, six months

to get ready for this. Like...

So, comedians, what's an evenwhiter musical than La La Land?

-HARDWICK: All right, points.-(laughter)

-That'd be very white.-(applause and cheering)

-Very white. John. -Annie Get your UGGs.

-HARDWICK: Yes, points.-(laughter, applause)

-Claudia. -How to Succeed

in Everything Without Really Trying.

-(laughter, applause)-HARDWICK: Points. Points.
