For weeks we’ve all sat and thought about how Chris Rock is going to handle the recent controversy surrounding diversity in Hollywood and more specifically the Oscars.

The comedian took the #OscarsSoWhite beef head on by making those in the crowd uncomfortable, making some points, and also throwing a bit of shade on those such as Jada Pinkett-Smith and Will Smith who decided to boycott the show.

Check out his best lines:

1)”I’m here at the Academy Awards, otherwise known as the White People’s Choice Awards. You realize, if they nominated hosts, I wouldn’t even get this job.”

2) “Why are we protesting? That’s the big question. Why this Oscars? It’s the 88th Academy Awards, which means this whole black nominees thing has happened at least 71 other times … and black people did not protest. Why? Because we had real things to protest at the time. Too busy being raped and lynched to care about who won best cinematographer. You know, when your grandmother is swinging from the tree, it’s really hard to care about best documentary foreign short.”

3)”Jada’s gonna boycott the Oscars? Jada boycotting the Oscars is like me boycotting Rihanna’s panties. I wasn’t invited.”

4) “We’ve got a black ‘Rocky’ this year. Some people call it ‘Creed.’ I call it black ‘Rocky.’ And that’s an unbelievable statement, because ‘Rocky’ takes place in a world where white athletes are as good as black athletes. ‘Rocky’s’ a science fiction movie. There are things that happen in ‘Star Wars’ that are more believable than things that happen in ‘Rocky.'”

5) “What I’m trying to say is it’s not about boycotting or anything. It’s just we want opportunity. We want the black actors to get the same opportunities as white actors. That’s it. And not just once. Leo gets a great part every year. All these guys get great parts all the time. But what about the black actors?”
