‘The Daily Show': Ronny Chieng Disses ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ Oscars Snub, Sam Elliot’s Mustache (Video)

Wednesday, January 23, 2019

In a fun gag on Tuesday’s “The Daily Show,” correspondent Ronny Chieng had some unkind words for the Best Supporting Actor Oscar nominees — mainly because he himself wasn’t nominated.

Plenty of fans were taken by surprise Tuesday morning when “Crazy Rich Asians” didn’t receive a single Oscar nomination, and so was Chieng, who played supporting character Eddie Cheng in the hit romantic comedy.

“Who gives a s— about Best Picture,” Chieng asked when he came out to discuss the matter with Trevor Noah. “The story this year is all about the deserving nominees who were snubbed…. especially in the only category that anyone actually cares about: Best Supporting Actor.”

Chieng laid into the “no-name hacks” who were nominated, starting with Sam Elliott (“A Star Is Born”).

“Everyone in the business knows his mustache is doing all the acting. I could have grown a mustache like that, but I care too much about the craft to rely on cheap facial props like that. Also my lip can’t do that.”

Next up, Adam Driver (“BlacKkKlansman”): “Big deal, he played a Jewish guy pretending to be in the KKK. I was playing a Chinese person from Hong Kong, when I’m really a Chinese person from Malaysia. That’s range.”

Chieng also had some funny jokes about Mahershala Ali (“Green Book”), Sam Rockwell (“Vice”), and Richard E. Grant (“Can You Ever Forgive Me”), but we won’t spoil them. Watch the whole clip above.
