In a quirky opening bit at Sunday’s Critics’ Choice Awards — which some in the celebrity-filled audience appeared to greet with blank stares (not unlike a year ago) — host T.J. Miller, one of the stars of “Silicon Valley,” avoided commenting on his arrest just a couple of days before the event.
As we reported previously, Miller was accused of hitting a car service driver in an incident Friday morning. The alleged altercation was reportedly sparked by a difference of opinion on Donald Trump.
Miller appeared to tease the audience about his arrest, promising on a couple of occasions to talk about “the elephant in the room” before bringing up Russian hacking and other topics.
Miller also made a similar promise via social media Sunday morning, tweeting: “Tonight I will address the elephant in the room at @CriticsChoice on A&E. Tune in and find out.”
