Later he returned to the stage to deliver his monologue and poked fun at tonight’s nominees and a few current event headlines.
“Lock the doors, we’re not leaving until we find a new host for ‘Jeopardy!'” Cedric joked about the quiz show’s firing of Mike Richards.
“We had to vaxxed to come here,” he said about the show’s safety protocols. “I got vaxxed. I did not have a reaction like Nicki Minaj’s cousin’s friend. I got Pfizer because I’m bougie. Pfizer, that’s the Neiman Marcus of vaccines, Moderna, that’s Macy’s. Johnson & Johnson, that’s TJ Maxx.”
Cedric noted how many Black actors were nominated for their work this year. “It’s a big job. It comes with a lot of pressure being Black. Black people are like, ‘Yo Ced, you gotta give Martin Lawrence an Emmy man,'” Egli ha detto.
“Le buone notizie, there’s a lot of Black people nominated tonight like my dawg Anthony Anderson. It’s his 11th nomination,” he added before noting he was up against Jason Sudeikis for “Ted Lasso” and Michael Douglas for “Kominsky Method.” “Good luck partner. Look like it’s still hard out here for a pimp.”
“The Bridgertons are another one. Very spicy,” he said of the smash-hit Netflix drama series. “But ain’t no way a Black man gonna have that much sex with a White woman in the 1800s. Jamie Foxx couldn’t pull that off as Django — and he was unchained.”
Cedric also roasted the British royal family. “'La corona,’ another great show,” Egli ha detto, “It’s embarrassing to the real monarchy.”
“[Il principe Harry] renounced his thrown quicker than Eddie Murphy did in ‘Coming to America,'” Cedric joked.
