Chris Rock gave the Best Picture nominees a new twist.

During the Oscars ceremony on Sunday, the host called for more opportunities for black actors – and showed just how easy it could be.

"If you're a black actor, just getting an opportunity to be in a movie can be a struggle," Rock said.

Rock, 50, offered a few examples of how some films might have looked – with the help of some cleverly spliced-together scenes featuring black actors.
