The SAG Awards are here!

And while there may not be any controversy surrounding the award show in which actors are recognized by their peers for outstanding performances, it's still one of our favorite shows to watch!

One of the best parts of the show is when stars introduce themselves to the camera and say why they identify as an actor!

Last year, Jennifer Aniston had one of the best monologues recalling her fondness of the craft throughout her childhood. She said:

"When I was a little girl growing up in New York City, all I ever wanted to be was Scarlett O'Hara. Oh, well. I'm Jennifer Aniston, and I'm an actor."

But Jen isn't the only star to have a funny "I'm an actor" monologue! Anne Hathaway, Steve Carell, and Whoopi Goldberg are just a FEW more of our favorites…

The Oscars are apparently over taking the blame for Hollywood's diversity problem!

Earlier this week, it came out that the majorly snubbed Straight Outta Compton cast wasn't even invited to this year's ceremony — which created an even bigger uproar over the #OscarsSoWhite controversy.

But the Academy Of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences says they aren't to blame, because they aren't the ones who do the inviting!

Whoopi Goldberg Takes Stacey Dash To School! Watch The View Host Explain EXACTLY Why Getting Rid Of BET & Black History Month Is Wrong!

| Filed under: TV NewsWhoopi GoldbergBET AwardsBill CosbyControversy

She's finally saying something we agree with!

Like most of the cast of The View this season, Whoopi Goldberg has spent the last few months saying some pretty controversial things — which may or may not have helped the ratings for the ABC daytime talk show.

To this day she's still sticking up for Bill Cosby for some reason, but luckily we are a united front when it comes to our opinions on Stacey Dash.

As you've probably heard, after the Oscars failed to nominate a single person of color in any of the acting categories this year, Jada Pinkett Smith proudly suggested that her fellow POCs boycott the awards show.

Always the contrarian, Stacey saw this as an opportunity to suck up to her FOX & Friends audience by flipping the situation and suggesting that having events like the BET Awards and Black History Month are just as racist as #OscarsSoWhite.

Thankfully, Whoopi was there to point out that minority communities are important because they're some of the only ways for people to actually learn about their own cultures.

Also, love her for trying, but Paula Faris just looks so awkward trying to prove she knows anything about black history. LOLz!

Ch-ch-check it out (above)!!!
