Saturday’s Indie Spirit Awards were a takedown of sexist bullshit and a celebration of inclusive talent. Hosts John Mulaney (“SNL”) and Nick Kroll (“Big Mouth”) had plenty to say about Hollywood predators at the event in La. “Let’s name some names!” exclaimed Mulaney. And that they did. Their monologue called out men including Kevin Spacey, Brett Ratner, Louis C.K. and — of course — Harvey Weinstein. They joked that “the male apology has become an art form,” citing Mario Batali’s apology that ended with a cinnamon bun recipe as particularly egregious.
The pair also mocked men who feel paranoid about interacting with women in the wake of #MeToo, saying that hugs are still okay, but “not the way you’re doing it, pal — all breathy.” “Women, people of color, what have you left us white males?” Kroll asked before answering his own question.
