Jussie Smollett was nominated for an NAACP award, but he didn’t win.
According to reports, Chris Rock was told to NOT make jokes about Jussie Smollett, but he could not help himself and did anyway.
The embattled television star was nominated for best supporting actor in a television drama for his role as Jamal Lyon on the Fox series but was edged out by “Grey’s Anatomy” star Jesse Williams, ABC reported.
Smollett has been nominated for the award four years in a row and won in 2017.
The award was handed out during the untelevised portion of the show Friday night.
Comedian Chris Rock hosted the event, and hilariously ripped the embattled actor and alleged hate hoax artist.

“Saturday Night Live” also refused to spare Smollett and ripped him in an awkward skit.
It appears that Smollett does not have many allies or believers in the entertainment industry.
