The Oscars was notable this year for its focus on the big issues — the environment, sexual assault, LGBTQI issues, and the big one….race.
But comedian Tina Fey, 45, got fed up with the rhetoric.
“Being at the Oscars… halfway through I was like, ‘This is some real Hollywood bullshit,” she told Howard Stern.
“Everyone’s telling me like what to do and it was like, people are yelling at me about rape and corporate greed, but really it’s climate change, and I was like ‘Guys, pick a lane. Hey everyone, we’re going to fix everything tonight. And also, you’re all rich. Why are you yelling at me about corporate greed? You’re all so rich.'”

She didn’t have a problem with Leonardo DiCaprio’s Best Actor acceptance speech, though, in which he spoke at length about climate change.
“I always am psyched when someone is articulate with those things because, let’s face it, actors are very stupid,” Fey said.
“But he’s so smart and his speech was so cogent.”
