You should never go full Kanye… Unfortunately, this is a memo that Keith Stanfield never received. At last night’s Critic’s Choice awards, the actor took a page right out of the ‘ol Kanye West playbook, storming the stage after Silicon Valley beat out Atlanta for Best Comedy Series.
“I want to thank everybody for, um, honoring us in this way. We worked very hard on Silicon Valley and here we are. Thank you,” said Stanfield, as Christian Slater paced awkwardly in the background. To be fair, this is precisely the sort of halfwitted thing his character, Darius, might pull on Atlanta. Also, to be fair, Atlanta definitely deserved that award (luckily Donald Glover did take home Best Actor in a Comedy Series earlier in the evening).
Seemingly unimpressed, Silicon Valley’s producer, Tom Lassally responded by saying, “Wow, no idea who that was.”
Really, he should be thanking Stanfield as this is the most the internet has had to say about Silicon Valley in, like, ever. And is anyone going to address the fact that Stanfield is casually wearing a captain’s hat to an award’s show? No? Alright. Watch the awkward moment below.
