A few actors and comedians helped out Chris Rock to show how different Oscar-nominated movies would be if black actors were in them.

Whoopi Goldberg in Joy

In another jab at #OscarsSoWhite, Whoopi Goldberg mopped the floors in the background as Jennifer Lawrence's character Joy Mangano tried to tape a commercial for her miracle mop.

Goldberg mocked Mangano and quipped that if a black woman were to be a lead in a movie, she would need to find the cure to cancer instead of simply inventing a self-wringing mop.

Leslie Jones in The Revenant

Saturday Night Live actor Leslie Jones was shown thrashing and tossing Leonardo DiCaprio about in a scene from The Revenant.

Jones screamed at DiCaprio for the lack of black women in the movie even after repeated calls from her agent.

Tracy Morgan in The Danish Girl

In a hilarious moment, Tracy Morgan wore a dress and heels in The Danish Girl.

He was in awe of his role, thinking to himself, "Look at me! I'm a black thespian..." After being caught by Alicia Vikander's character, Morgan said, "I'm a Danish girl!" and began to devour a pastry in his hand.

Chris Rock in The Martian

Chris Rock got some help from Jeff Daniels and Kristen Wiig who decide if they should help a black astronaut stuck on Mars in a nod to The Martian.

Wiig and Daniels wondered if they should save Rock's character.

"I'll tell you what's a PR problem, spending $2,500 white dollars to save one black astronaut. We'll all be out of jobs," Daniels said.

The two ignore Rock's character and leave the room as Whoopi Goldberg's janitor returned to turn off the transmission screen, leaving Rock stuck on Mars.
