The ladies, who shared a funny moment recently at the Critics’ Choice Awards, presented the award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series.
“Wait, wait, wait. If it’s Sterling K. Brown, can I say it?” Niecy said as they were getting ready to open the envelope. Olivia replied, “Yes, why?” and Niecy quickly said, “’cause he black.”
“I mean, but you can say anybody’s name who is Asian that’s nominated,” Niecy added, though there were no Asian actors nominated in the category. (Olivia‘s mom was born and raised in Vietnam and is of Chinese descent)
FYI: Olivia is wearing an Oscar de la Renta dress, Tamara Mellon shoes, a Tyler Ellis clutch, and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry. Niecy is wearing a Julea Domani dress.
