Simu Liu was on hand at this year’s Oscars to show support for "Shang-Chi” and to present the award for Best International Feature Film with Tiffany Haddish. While Liu was showered with praise after the show, it was his fathers' hilarious words of wisdom beforehand that may have had the biggest impact on him.
Just four days before the big event, Liu tweeted, “My father, full of encouraging words: 'So the Oscars are coming up, have you found out what category you're presenting yet? Also want to remind you that the Oscars aren't about YOU!’” The actor added a “Thanks, Dad” to the end of his tweet.
Fans on Twitter leapt to his defense, with follower @Danjitsu stating, "Asian parent encouragement never changes, doesn't matter about the level of success." While the Oscars may not have been all about him, Liu wound up doing a great job and looked great doing it.
