Amy Schumer Roasted A Bunch Of A-Listers At The Oscars, And I Actually Loved It

"Aaron Sorkin — how do you make a movie about the most iconic female comedian, and not one laugh?"

Amy Schumer joined Wanda Sykes and Regina Hall to cohost the Oscars this year. Amy absolutely did not hold back when it came to roasting the hell out of rich A-listers this year — just how I like it.

ABC

Here are some of her best burns:

In the opener with all three hosts, Regina said, "We've been dealing with COVID for two years. It's been really hard on people."

To which Amy replied, "I mean, just look at Timothée Chalamet," as the camera panned to J.K. Simmons:

Then, a little later, did her own monologue, where she started off congratulating all the nominees for making a movie during a pandemic, but assured them, "They weren't all great."

ABC

She then said, "After years of ignoring women's stories, this year we finally got a movie about the incredible Williams sisters' — dad."

ABC

Amy's referencing King Richard, a film that chronicles Serena and Venus Williams' father Richard and his specific plan to shoot them to superstardom. 

She then said, "We're honoring a lot beautiful couples. Will and Jada, Javier Bardem and Penélope Cruz — and Jake and Maggie. A night for lovers." LOL.

ABC

"What other movies are nominated? Don't Look Up is nominated," she continued. "I guess the Academy members 'don't look up' reviews."

ABC

Don't Look Up polarized audiences, earning a 55% on Rotten Tomatoes, which is pretty low for an Oscar-nominated movie.

"Jennifer Lawrence was amazing in it. She gained some weight this year," she said, referencing Jen's recent pregnancy.

ABC

Next up was my favorite burn — her Leonardo DiCaprio joke. "I mean, Leonardo DiCaprio. What can I say about him? He's done so much to fight for climate change and leave behind a cleaner, greener, planet for his girlfriends — because he's older, and they're younger. OK, you get it."

ABC

She then moved on, saying, "Aaron Sorkin, a genius. Truly, right? The innovation to make a movie about Lucille Ball without a moment that's funny... If you're Aaron Sorkin, how do you make a movie about the most iconic female comedian and not one laugh? It's brilliant — it's like making a biopic about Michael Jordan and just showing the bus trips between games."

ABC

They panned to Javier and Andrew Garfield, who particularly liked that one:
