Critics’ Choice Awards host Olivia Munn roasted Mark Wahlberg and did a Nancy Kerrigan spoof of “I, Tonya”
Munn and Niecy Nash toasted and roasted “all the good guys in Hollywood,” which included a dig at Wahlberg’s $1.5 million salary for reshooting All the Money in the World, while co-star Michelle Williams earned just $1,000. “I do want to say thank you to the producers for paying Niecy and I the same amount of money and Mark Wahlberg $1 million,” she said. “He took a pay cut, so that’s really nice and generous of him. Thank you so much.” Munn also did a rap monologue with Jay Pharoah and portrayed Nancy Kerrigan in an I, Nancy spoof of I, Tonya. Kerrigan tweeted in response, "Loved @oliviamunn. She can play me anytime.”

Showtime’s White Famous has an interesting premise, but it’s weighed down by “penile self-obsession”
The comedy starring SNL allum Jay Pharoah and produced by Jamie Foxx “should be better than it is,” says Sonia Saraiya, who adds: “Though the show finds moments for sharp commentary about black men in the industry, those are suffocated by scenes in which the presumably male viewer is invited, with (Pharoah's character) Floyd, to stare at a pair of t*ts.”
