People’s Choice host Simu Liu criticizes Jo Koy for Golden Globes monologue

Simu Liu playfully winked at Jo Koy’s not-so-Golden Globes monologue during the People’s Choice Awards on Sunday night.

During Liu’s keynote speech at the weekend party, he mentioned last year’s entertainment crème de la crème: Taylor Swift, oppenheimerand Barbie (where he played one of the many Kens).

oppenheimer showed us that a three-hour drama about the moral complexities of the creation of the atomic bomb could be a massive financial success… as long as it came out the same day as Barbie,” he joked Shang-Chi and the legend of the ten rings star.

Simu Liu hilariously addressed the mix of criticism Jo Koy received for hosting the Golden Globes last month. “An Asian host of a major awards show, what could go wrong?” she joked.

Simu Liu succeeded where Jo Koy failed

Jo Koy made an infamous joke at the expense of America’s sweetheart, Taylor Swift, and her current love, NFL player Travis Kelce, at the Golden Globes. “As you know, we arrived after a football doubleheader.” Koy said during his opening monologue.

“The big difference between the Golden Globes and the NFL: At the Golden Globes, we get fewer camera shots of Taylor Swift, I swear.” The camera then shows a bewildered Swift, drinking her drink.

Meanwhile, Simu Liu seemed to learn from Jo Koy’s mistake. Fast and Barbie Both were nominated for multiple People’s Choice Awards. Liu wasted no time joking about these two phenomena.

“Who could forget that little movie about a blonde American icon that made the entire country dress up, dance the night away, and make big waves at the box office? I’m talking, of course, about [the] Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour movie,” Liu joked.

“I was a Swiftie long before I was a Ken,” he commented, addressing the assumption that he would choose Barbie based on the movie description.

Of course, Koy also took aim at Liu’s film, Barbie, during his monologue at the Globes, describing it simply as a movie centered on “a plastic doll with big tits.” Koy’s jokes appeared to be poorly received in the room, leading to much online scorn and social media drag.

Koy seemed to have a feeling that his jokes weren’t landing, and he even publicly blamed his writers during the Globes telecast. “I got the job 10 days ago!” Koy stated. “Some I wrote, others wrote,” she added. “I wrote some of these and those are the ones you’re laughing at.”
