Watch Niecy Nash and Olivia Munn Enjoy Some Racial Banter at SAG Noms (Video)

They also made plans to see ”I, Tonya“

Who says America is afraid to talk about race? Olivia Munn and Niecy Nash were the announcers for the 24th annual SAG Awards nominations ceremony on Wednesday morning, and enjoyed some light racial banter while reading off the nominees.

When “Black-ish” was announced in the category of Ensemble in a Comedy Series, Nash told Munn, “You coulda pointed to me. You coulda been like, ‘Black-ish.'”

“Then that’s what all the press would be about — is that I pointed to you! If ‘Fresh Off the Boat’ comes up, don’t point at me.”

Munn’s mother was born and raised in Vietnam and is of Chinese descent.

The crowd laughed along with Nash and Munn before the duo continued reading the nominations. When “Orange Is the New Black” came up on screen, Munn awkwardly pointed towards herself.

Throughout the nominations ceremony, Munn and Nash also expressed their love towards several nominees, including “Shameless” star William H. Macy and “Master of None” actor Aziz Ansari.

When Robin Wright was announced for “House of Cards,” Munn said, “love her, and I’m so excited for the next season.” The upcoming season of the Netflix show will focus on Wright’s character, as Kevin Spacey will no longer appear after allegations of sexual misconduct.

The nominations were announced at 7 a.m. at the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood. Frontrunners were “Big Little Lies,” “Black-ish,” “Glow,” “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” “I, Tonya” and “Ladybird.”

The two announcers also made plans to go see “I, Tonya” together.
