Final Week Tonight‘s fixation on Adam Driver is not over simply but.
After the HBO collection’ took house Excellent Writing for a Selection Sequence in the course of the 2021 Emmy Awards on Sept. 19, one in every of its writers made it clear that the present wasn’t performed giving a tough time to Adam. The Marriage Story actor had beforehand been the butt of quite a few sexualized requests for violence on the comedy program that is hosted by John Oliver.
“And eventually, we wish to dedicate this award to Adam Driver,” the present’s author stated from the Emmys podium, resulting in forceful nodding from John within the background. “He is aware of what he did, and we all know what we would like him to do.”
Through the present’s final episode of 2020, John acknowledged that he had spent the previous yr “demanding that Adam Driver demolish me, crush my larynx, you unwieldy boulder.” Adam later appeared on the episode and requested the host, “Take heed to me—what the f–k are you doing?”
Adam quipped that the references to him had been “both sexual or violent,” and he added, “This unusual, unusual bit that for some purpose you have pulled me into—what’s it?”
