The last weekend of award season had Stern Show shout-outs aplenty. Before Jimmy Kimmel closed the Academy Awards with a “Hit ‘em with the Hein” on Sunday, stand-up comedian John Mulaney started Saturday’s Independent Spirit Awards with a joke about Wack Packer Sour Shoes. Mulaney, along with his co-host and “Oh, Hello” co-star Nick Kroll, were talking up fan-favorite film “Lady Bird” and its star Saoirse Ronan during their opening monologue.
“’Lady Bird’ was written and directed by the incredible Greta Gerwig and it stars the wickedly talented Sour Shoes Ronan,” Mulaney said. Kroll instantly backed him up with a “Nailed it.”
Check out the moment around the “noine” minute mark in the video (above).
Gerwig went on to win Best Screenplay for “Lady Bird” later in the night. And though Saoirse didn’t take home the Best Female Lead award, it’s certainly an honor just to have one’s name associated with a Wack Pack member.
