Ahmed revealed My Year of Dicks was nominated in the Animated Short Film category as the live audience sniggered at its name.

Williams quickly said, “no comment” to the hilarious moment as Twitter quickly reacted.

“The eruption of giggles when My Year of Dicks was nominated for Best Animated Short. Lol,” tweeted film critic Courtney Howard.

One person watching at home wrote: “Riz Ahmed breaking while announcing My Year of Dicks Oscar nomination will be more entertaining than the entirety of the Oscars ceremony.”

And another person added: “Riz Ahmed saying My Year of Dicks to delighted giggles, yes Hollywood is back.”

My Year of Dicks was directed by Sara Gunnarsdóttir and created and written by Pamela Ribon. It is based a Ribon’s comedic memoir Notes to Boys: And Other Things I Shouldn’t Share in Public.

The film follows a 15-year-old Pam living in Houston in 1991 as she embarks on a journey to find the right boy to lose her virginity to.
