Move over Amy Poehler and Tina Fey, a new female duo is here to stay. Niecy Nash and Olivia Munn proved yet again on Thursday night during the 2018 Critics Choice Awards that they are a force to be reckoned with.
Raising a toast to the “good guys in Hollywood,” the pair teamed up for hilarious skit targeting men in Hollywood, specifically, Mark Wahlberg and his latest major pay day.
“I want to say ‘thank you’ to the producers for paying Niecy and I the same amount of money and Mark Wahlberg a million dollars,” Munn joked. “He took a pay cut, so it’s really nice and generous of him. Thank you so much.”
Earlier this week, it was reported that Mark got paid a whopping $1.5 million to reshoot major scenes in the drama All the Money in the World while his female co-star, Michelle Williams, got a lousy $80 per diem which totaled a measly $1,000.
The crew was forced to reshoot scenes after Kevin Spacey’s sexual assault allegations last year. Following the shocking claims, the studio replaced Spacey and the already finished film and used Christopher Plummer instead.
During the toast, Olivia surged, “I’d like to raise a glass to that studio executive who had me meet him in the studio conference room, instead of his actual hotel room.”
Niecy toasted to “the male casting directors who didn’t ever say anything derogatory to me in an audition.” And Olivia followed up by thanking “that famous actor who didn’t treat me with crap after I said I didn’t want to drinks with him after the show. What a guy, huh?”
Oivia, who hosted the CCAa, also killed her opening monologue with Jay Pharaoh.
