managed to address all the different stuff that i thought was fair. he talked about how, you know, there weren't any black actors or actresses nominated but also talked about why there are separate categories for women and men. i thought and he was lot of fun. but let's take a look at the monolog. >> i'm here at the academy awards. otherwise known as the white people's choice awards. you realize if they nominated northwests i wouldn't even get get get get -- nominated host, i wouldn't get nominated. >> you need to have black categories. you already do it with men and women. think about it. there's no real reason for there to be a man and a woman category
come on. there's no reason. it's not track and field. you don't have to separate them. robert deniro has never said i better slow this acting down so meryl streep can catch up. >> even the concept of having black coordination then have asian categories too and every minority. you know what it's got to be the best performances. people vote personally what they thought was the best performance. >> i think the argument too is just give more opportunity sos there can be more performances so you can choose, so people will have -- >> it's fair. >> there's been so much change in this business. it's going the right way. it may take longer than some people want. but ultimately i want the best person to win. the best performance to win. >> everyone would agree with that. >> i don't think so. >> i do. i think they want the best performance.
saying a lot of people don't have many opportunities to act in films because it doesn't fit this particular character so they don't have as many opportunities and when you don't have as many chances you don't have as much, chance to win. >> i don't know, hoda. i disagree on that. i've seen so much change. all for the better. >> let's move on to shall we say oscar fashion. it was big. >> yes. >> okay. so these are some of the dresses. >> did you notice a trend? >> i saw a lot of bright colors. >> all for spring. >> you loved this one right here. >> i thought she was, talk about a breath of fresh air. she looked beautiful. alicia vikander. age appropriate. she's young, fresh, brilliant. i just thought -- you know she wasn't trying to being a sex pot. she looked like she was a celebration. >> i like naomi watts.
