Steve Martin and the one, the only Chris Rock, two of the funniest men in the world opened the 92nd Oscars®!

From the mouth of Chris Rock:  “Jeff Bezos is so rich that he got divorced and he’s still the richest man in the world. He saw Marriage Story and thought it was a comedy.”

They also criticized the largely white nominations, with Rock pointing out two-time Oscar winner Mahershala Ali and saying the truth about being a Black person on America.  The set up was this --- “Mahershala has two Oscars. You know what that means when the cops pull him over? Nothing.” 

Here comedy highlights the sad truth of what it means to be Black and Brown in America.

Rock also highlighted Cynthia Erivo, the night’s only person of color nominated for acting in the film "Harriet," Rock said, “Cynthia Erivo did so great at hiding black people that the Academy got her to hide all the black nominees!
