‘Fresh Off a Boat’ Cast Calls Out HFPA for 1996 Ang Lee Snub

Is Ang Lee still green with a Hollywood Foreign Press Association for his 1996 Golden Globes detriment to Mel Gibson for best director?

Likely not. The Sense and Sensibility helmer has given won twice, for Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon in 2001 and again in 2006 for Brokeback Mountain, though a illusory family of ABC’s Fresh Off a Boat is happy to still lift a grudge.

Playing adult their mid-1990s milieu, Randall Park, Constance Wu and a rest of a expel have expelled a for-your-consideration mark of sorts — showing a family, all sporting T-shirts with Lee’s likeness, losing their common cold when their associate Taiwanese-born American comes adult brief opposite Gibson’s Braveheart.

“The Huang family has not watched a Golden Globes given 1996,” it reads, as intense PSA-friendly piano chords play in a background. “Give them a reason to come behind by honoring them with a nomination.”

There are, of course, copiousness of other ’90s-friendly references — The Silence of a Lambs and the O.J. Simpson hearing among them — but Wu’s comment of a doubtful artistic force behind Sense and Sensibility might tip them all.

The Golden Globes are quick approaching, by a way. The deadline for ballots is Dec. 7, with a nominations proclamation following on Dec. 10.
