Saturday Night Live got in on the Oscars boycott hullabaloo this week with its own rendition of an awards show.
The show lampooned the Academy Awards with its skit named the “Screen Guild Awards” where white actors were nominated for the “Best Actor Award” despite having minor roles in predominately black fictitious movies.
“There are so many great performances this year, it’s a shame we cannot nominate more. But I think we can all agree these are the best of the best,” the host, played by Cecile Strong, said.
In a parody of Creed called “Punching Upwards,” Tarran Killam, who played Coach Vito, is nominated for the mock award over the black actor, played by Jay Pharaoh.
And it gets more ridiculous from there with “White man with camera” and “Unseen voice on the phone” nominated for their roles in the fake films.
The skit ends with the award being won by “all the white guys.”
The skit is about as ridiculous as the Oscars controversy itself.
Watch the clip below.
