Kumail Nanjiani (Or Steven Spielberg) Reacts to Golden Globe Snub

Writer, actor and comedian Kumail Nanjiani reacted to “The Big Sick”’s Golden Globe snub on Twitter. Or did he?

The Golden Globes revealed their list of nominees on Dec. 11, but while many films, television programs and performances made the cut, Nanjiani’s “The Big Sick” was noticeably left out. On Twitter, Nanjiani reacted to the snub by pretending to be Steven Spielberg promoting the film:

When Deadline reported on the tweet, Nanjiani/Spielberg replied:

The rom-com “The Big Sick” is based on the true story of how Nanjiani met and fell in love with his wife, Emily Gordon, who also co-wrote the script. The couple’s love story is complicated by Nanjiani’s family’s disapproval and Emily’s mysterious coma. Critics lauded the heartfelt comedy when it premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, and it is also nominated for an Independent Spirit Award.

The film is currently available to stream on Amazon Prime.
