Asian Americans entertainers were present both on stage and on the red carpet at the 68th Emmy Awards in Hollywood Sunday.

Contance Wu and Randall Park presented the awards for best guest actor and actress in a comedy series.

Wu pointed out that the Creative Emmys were presented over two nights.

“Wow, that makes three nights of Emmys,” responded Park. “So I guess that means Fresh Off the Boat will get our award on the fourth night?”

“Get over it, Randall,” said Wu.

Fans apparently still haven’t gotten over it, with many on Twitter giving shout outs to Wu, expressing dismay that she didn’t receive a nomination.
