Oscars 2016 ‘Saturday Night Live’ Parody Mocks #OscarsSoWhite Nominations
Oscars 2016 nominations were declared last January 14, 2016, and the entertainment industry has been baffling about how the event only credited all-white candidates. Since the results have devastated the black community, “Saturday Night Live” held nothing back as they dedicated a segment over the weekend with a sketch that addresses the #OscarsSoWhite issue.Advertisement
The bogus awards show segment entitled “Screen Guild Awards” of Saturday Night Live was a mockery of the original Screen Actors Guild Awards. It shows actors currently declared nominees for Oscars 2016 awards night.
Some of the acts showed Coach Vito, played by Taran Killam, in his performance in “Creed.” The clip shows the comedian punching upward. Little Q, represented by Pete Davidson, also performed a parody of “Straight Outta Compton” entitled “Shut ‘Em Down.” Dave, played by Beck Bennet, also had a segment called Thurgood, White Man With Camera, played by Bobby Moynihan, also showcased Idris Alba in “Beasts of Nation” called “All the Beasts of Heaven,” and lastly, Ron Rudnitsky performed a “Red Line” parody of Unseen Voice on Phone which was taken from the film “The Big Short.”
The most hilarious of all was the ending. It shows a tie, which showcases five “all-white” guys winning the Oscars 2016 parody.
In other news, Ronda Rousey was the host for the said event. In fact, she was seen making comedic commentaries on the controversial Oscars 2016 nominations parody.
As the show went on, it was apparent that the movies revolve around people of color but the roles mentioned for the awards were downright hilarious.
All joking aside, the official broadcast of the upcoming Oscars 2016 event, also known as the 88th Academy Awards night, will air on ABC this February 28, 2016.
