Chris Rock Calls the Oscars out in Killer Monologue

Any doubt where Chris Rock stood on the #OscarsSoWhite issue has been torched by his brilliantly sharp opening monologue. Cue the awkwardness.

 

Oh, Chris Rock. You legend. For the man who has made a career in calling it as he sees it, this was his zenith. A towering brilliant effort that cut directly to the point of cultural misrepresentation at the Academy Awards. While he said it through comedy, which wrung laughter from the crowd, underneath that mirth was vast chair-shifting awkwardness, underpinned by the frozen closeups of notable A-listers.

Bravo.
