Aziz Ansari didn’t attend the 2018 Display screen Actors Guild Awards, however his presence was positively felt Sunday evening throughout the announcement of the nominees for Finest Actor in a Comedy Collection.
When Ansari’s identify was referred to as, there was a notable lack of applause. No time was allotted for applause, both.
Ansari gained the Golden Globe for Finest Efficiency by an Actor in a Tv Collection, Musical or Comedy simply two weeks in the past.
Earlier this month in an article printed on Babe.internet, an unnamed girl described a coercive sexual encounter she had with the 34-year-old comic and actor that left her feeling violated. Ansari responded to the claims made within the piece by stating that he believed the interplay to be “utterly consensual” and that he has taken the accuser’s “phrases to coronary heart and responded privately.”
Ansari was nominated for his position on the Netflix collection “Grasp of None” and was the only nominee — of a class that included fellow nominees Anthony Anderson, Larry David, Sean Hayes, William H. Macy and Marc Maron — to not obtain applause.
The award in the end went to William H. Macy for his position in “Shameless,” however many on Twitter had been fast to notice the shortage of applause, and the actor’s notable absence.
Ansari’s rep didn’t instantly reply to HuffPost’s request for remark.
