Mindy Kaling is among presenters at the 92nd Academy Awards to be held on Feb. 9 at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles, California.
“Guess what? Ya girl is joining the stage at the 92nd Oscars,” Kaling wrote Jan. 28 on Instagram. “Very excited to present and join an evening recognizing so many talented friends and colleagues.”
However, Kaling’s latest film “Late Night,” directed by Nisha Ganatra and starring Emma Thompson, missed out on an Oscar nomination, despite being nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress (Thompson).
On Jan. 28, Kaling hosted the 22nd annual Costume Designers Guild Awards in Beverly Hills, California. “The Mindy Project” star flashed cleavage and leg in the navy velvet gown with blue chiffon cape by Salvador Perez. Throughout the night, she had two outfit changes — sequinned aqua dress and a ruffled pink frock that showed off her shoulder.
Kaling has been recently seen on the big screen in “A Wrinkle In Time,” “Ocean’s 8” and “Late Night,” as well as on NBC's sitcom “Champions.”
Last month, NBC announced that Kaling is developing a comedy series for the network's new streaming platform Peacock. Reportedly titled “Expecting,” the show is said to center on a single woman who asks her gay male best friend to be a sperm donor so she can have a baby by the time she's 40.
