Chris Rock took a moment to call out some of the real-life inspirations for some of the Oscar nominees that were in the audience during the 2016 ceremony, including Joy Mangano (Joy) and Michael Rezendes (Spotlight).

He then got silly, also joking that Suge Knight from Straight Outta Compton was in the theater, before cutting to an actor playing Suge wearing an orange jumpsuit and cuffs.
