Megan Mullally hosted the Screen Actors Guild Awards, and according to social media, things got off to a cringe-worthy start.
The actress took the stage with Alec Baldwin at the award show Sunday to present the trophy for outstanding performance by a male actor in a comedy series – but before announcing the first winner of the night, they made some awkward sexual jokes.
“Give it to me,” Mullally said in a suggestive tone even though she was referring to the winner’s envelope that Baldwin was holding. Baldwin responded with his own suggestive quips.
