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.
Priyanka Chopra presented the award for best directing of a limited series, movie or special. Chopra dazzled in a Jason Wu gown, but it was how she wore her cherry-hued red lipstick that drew raves from fashion critics.
Padma Laskshmi was on hand to see if her show Project Runway would win for Outstanding Reality-Competition Program. That honor went to The Voice.
Lakshmi shined in a sequined silver dress.
The big news is the victory of Alan Yang and Aziz Ansari for Best Writing for the Parent episode of Master of None.
See our separate coverage on that outstanding achievement.
