The actor highlighted two of the Best Picture nominations with Olivia Wilde when he began: "I know what you're thinking ...here comes another black presenter.

"How come there's no Oscar for them very hard working little yellow people with tiny dongs? You know the minions."

Then, he highlighted the work of actor Idris Elba and "the amazing black bloke from Star Wars - Darth Vadar." He later whispered to Wilde: "You is well fit".

He was dressed as himself as he walked the red carpet earlier in the night with his wife Isla Fisher, whom Ryan Seacrest refused to interview after throwing flour on him last year.
