Bong Joon Ho’s “Parasite” took home four Academy Awards last week, something Trevor Noah celebrated on Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” on Monday. But the host couldn’t help but to point out an ironic detail he noticed whenever the audience literally cheered for diversity.

“You know what I did think was funny about the night,” the 35-year-old comedian said in clip that was posted to “The Daily Show” Twitter, “was how many times someone did get on stage, give a speech about Hollywood needs diversity, and then everyone in the audience would clap...It’s all white people. Who do you think that person is talking to?”

Noah went on to jab at the sincerity of the gesture, pointing out Hollywood’s inconsistency when it comes to handling diversity.

The Academy Awards has been infamously criticized in recent years for how minority filmmakers and performers are often snubbed. Yet, it appears to Noah that every other year, the Academy seems to transparently lean the complete opposite direction, something “The Daily Show” host described as a sort of “pendulum” effect.

Last year, he pointed out, “Green Book” took home the Oscar for best picture, despite some criticisms of how it portrayed race and seemed to lean into stereotypes. So, the Academy swings hard in the other direction the very next year, voting for “Parasite,” a South Korean film about class warfare. It might be too woke, Noah joked, before claiming the pendulum is about to swing in the other direction -- and it will “swing back hard.”

“Which is why I’m going to be releasing my new film this fall,” the comedian joked. “It's an all-male reboot of 'Little Women.' It’s gonna crush.”
