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?
-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.
