As the world continues to voice its thoughts on the mostly white list of Oscar nominees, "Saturday Night Live" added its social commentary to the #OscarsSoWhite conversation in this week's episode hosted by fighter Ronda Rousey.

The sketch, titled "Screen Guild Awards," featured five nominees for best actor, all white men in movies about black people -- a direct criticism of Sylvester Stallone's Oscar nomination for "Creed" and the nomination for "Straight Outta Compton's" screenwriters, two white men and a white woman.

The white actors were played by Taran Killam, Pete Davidson, Beck Bennett, Bobby Moynihan and Jon Rudnitsky, while Keenan Thompson, Leslie Jones, Sasheer Zamata and Jay Pharoah played the black stars of each nominated film.

And the winner is... "All the white guys."
