Awkwafina's New Show Is Based on Her Life Before She Became a Household Name

By

There are few people in Hollywood who've had a more transformative past few years than Nora Lum aka Awkwafina. After going viral for her outlandish comedic rap songs, she got her start on the MTV show Girl Code. She slowly rose up in the public eye as she did a stint as a talk show host before getting her first big movie role in the 2016 film Neighbors 2: Sorority Uprising. 

While the film served as a foot in the door for the comedian's career, her big entrance into notoriety came with her 2018 roles in Ocean's 8 and Crazy Rich Asians. Her subsequent work in 2019's The Farewell earned her a Golden Globe Award.
