While Chris Rock made lighthearted jokes about the lack of diversity in this year’s nominations, Hart took a more serious tone.

“I’m a positive guy,” Hart said. “But I want to take a moment to applaud all my actors and actresses of color who did not get nominated. These problems of today will eventually be the problems of old.”

“Let’s not let this negative issue of diversity beat us. Let’s do what we do best and work hard.” (RELATED: Chris Rock Opens The Oscars With Monologue Full Of Jokes About White People)
