Tracy Morgan went back to his comedy sketch roots in one of the funniest moments of the 88th Academy Awards on Sunday.
In a pre-taped skit that took direct aim at the #OscarsSoWhite controversy, Morgan, Whoopi Goldberg and Leslie Jones joined host Chris Rock in spoofing the Best Picture nominees (and Joy) by adding black actors into some of the films' most riveting scenes.
Goldberg kicked off the parody by popping up in Joy, yelling to a frozen Joy Mangano (Jennifer Lawrence) that it's really not that hard to mop.
Jones may have won the entire bit, however, when she appeared as a character much scarier than any bear -- a scorned woman yelling at Leonardo DiCaprio's character in The Revenant, "You should have called me back!"
To the delight of everyone, Morgan then appeared with a dramatic, but goofy new take on the lead role in The Danish Girl -- a girl literally eating danishes.
The skit ended with a send-up of The Martian (because is there an easier film to spoof?). Rather than superimpose an actor into the scene, Jeff Bridges and Kristen Wiig appeared as the two people in the NASA control room who had to decide if they should bring the stranded black astronaut, played by Rock, back to Earth.
Spoiler alert: They left the comedian in space and chose to get food instead.
It was a nice follow-up to Rock's monologue, which almost exclusively dealt with the diversity controversy head-on, but unfortunately was the last unanimously funny bit before a few awkward jokes fell flat.
