Aubrey Plaza Jokes About the Oscars' Lack of Diversity During Her Spirit Awards Monologue (Video)

Aubrey Plaza appears on stage to deliver her opening monologue at the 2020 Film Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday afternoon (February 8) at the pier in Santa Monica, Calif.

The 35-year-old actress hosted the event for the second year in a row and she took aim at the Oscars’ lack of diversity.

“I’m hosting the second most important show of the weekend. The Independent Spirit Awards are so much cooler than the Oscars: it’s the daytime when we’re at the beach, we recognize female directors — all two of them!” Aubrey said. “I am so proud of how diverse this show is. JLo and I are super hot Puerto Ricans! I mention that because Puerto Rico is kind of like an independent film: beautiful, not enough people have seen it and its financing is always falling through.”

Aubrey also joked about celebs like Renee Zellweger, Shia LaBeouf, Idina Menzel, Willem Dafoe and more during her monologue.

FYI: Aubrey is wearing Alexander McQueen with a Tasaki ring on the red carpet.
