Awkwafina Shares The Bizarre Text Message Her Aunt Sent Her After Golden Globes Nominations

One of the nicest things about something objectively good happening to you is the shower of excitable messages that pour in from friends and family once you’ve broken the news.

Just ask Awkwafina. Earlier this week she was nominated for the Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy, for her role in The Farewell. Chatting to Jimmy Kimmel on Thursday, the actor showed a screenshot of her family’s group chat in the days after the news broke.

It was pretty much exactly what you’d expect — with the very glaring exception of Awkwafina’s aunt Linda, who decided to send a lengthy paragraph about the dangers of “gluten, grains and beans” instead of a simple “congrats.”
