5 completely badass (and equally important) things Chris Rock said at Oscars 2016

Speed News Desk | Updated on: 14 February 2017, 5:49 IST

Let's establish one thing. Chris Rock absolutely killed it at Oscars 2016.

Although Leonardo DiCaprio finally won the 'Best Actor' award this year, it has to be Chris Rock who stole the show. Yes, we just said that.

For a 'white'washed Oscar that this was, Rock stood out in her completely white suit, white man ensemble, unable to mask the proud black man he is.

Here are some of his greatest quotes from the night, bound to go down in Oscar genius history!

1. His subtle start

"I'm at the Academy awards or should I say, the White People's Choice Awards."

2. And complete irreverence

"If they nominated hosts, I wouldn't even get this job."

3. He stopped at NOTHING

"The In-Memoriam package is just going to be black people that got shot by the cops on the way to the movies."

4. Brought up DiCaprio

"Leo gets a great part every year. Every year! What about the black actors?"

5. And handled the #BoycottOscars thing with elan

"Jada boycotting the Oscars is like me boycotting Rihanna's panties. I wasn't invited."

Come on Chris. Take an Oscar. Just take one.
