Chris addressed the issue of the nominees lacking diversity by making fun of the films and the Academy.He also went after the actors likeWill and Jada Smith who boycotted the show because they weren’t nominated.
His much anticipated monologue clearly took a lot of work but it definitely paid off. Fans and stars alike loved the topical speech. Several former hosts, fellow African American celebrities and other comedians shared their support on social media before, during, and after the show.
