Actress Angela Bassett added to the list of comedy skits on the Oscars 2016 with “Black History Month Minute.”

Host Chris Rock introduced the clip with, “In honor of Black History Month, The Academy of Arts and Sciences has prepared this special presentation. Let’s take a look.”

“This man has long been an inspiration to his people. You can call him actor, producer, comedian, musician but we simply call him Jack Black.”

The skit poked fun once again at the lack of diversity in the Oscar nominations this year.

ABC tweeted, “Angela Bassett recognizes a legendary actor in this Black History Month Minute presented by @SamsungMobileUS”
