Awkwafina appeared on the October 6th episode Saturday Night Live as a host. This marked the first time in nearly 18 years that an Asian woman hosted the show. In late 2000, Lucy Liu took hosting duties.

Cheering Her On

Awkwafina’s Crazy Rich Asians‘ co-stars decided to throw a watching party for the occasion. Constance Wu, Harry Shum Jr., Chris Pang, and Jimmy O. Yang got together to watch their friend in action. Wu posted a photo of the gathering on Instagram with the caption, “It’s an AWKWAFINA PARTY!!! We love you Nora you killed it!”

Cementing Her Legacy

Awkwafina’s not done yet in terms of world domination. She’s slated to be in The Angry Birds Movie 2, which releases on September 6, 2019. The actress will also work on a yet to be announced film with director Lulu Wang.
