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,

-which...-(laughter)

...incidentallyis in the works, you guys.

Daniel Day-Lewis is gonna beamazing in this movie.

-Amazing.-(laughter)

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?

-Kate. -The Grand Wizard of Oz.

-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.
