SNL Vaporizes Hollywood For Snubbing Black Actors At Awards Show

Screen Shot 2016-01-23 at 11.55.14 PMThe Academy Awards™ must have some kind of hella skillful trademark attorneys, because even the satire veterans at Saturday Night Live thought twice about using their name, even as they enacted a vicious sendup of Hollywood’s penchant for snubbing black actors and rewarding white actors, an obvious reference to this year’s #OscarsSoWhite controversy.

Instead, the nominees for the fictional “Screen Guild Awards” were all predictably white, but the roles for which they were nominated also sent up the broader issues of diversity in Hollywood.

Watch the clip above, from Saturday Night Live.
