Angela Basset Brings More Attention To Diversity Issues At The 2016 Oscars With A Hysterical Jab At Black History Month!
And the laughs keep on comin'!
At the 2016 Oscars on Sunday, the Academy paid tribute to Black History Month in a very inneresting way.
Naturally, the moment was particularly poignant considering the #OscarsSoWhite movement and the tons of jokes made about diversity so far. You just know Chris Rock couldn't let this opportunity pass him by!
To break it down, the talented and lovely Angela Bassett opened the bit with a very serious chat about Black History Month as well as a tribute to a very talented celebrity…
While attendees may have had a few ideas as to who Angela was talking about, let's just say the joke ended in a very surprising and funny way — we don't think anyone saw this coming!
