Tracee admitted that the nomination was lovely, but “the Golden Globes are mired in a lot of mess right now.”

She added, “It’s always lovely to be recognized in any shape or form for the work that you do, and the company is beautiful, but the Hollywood Foreign Press Association has a lot on it. So we will see.”

Tracee then pulled the conversation away from the Golden Globes and onto the fact that Michelle Obama would guest star in the premiere episode of black-ish.

“It was wonderful. She and I are friends. It was a phone call I made. We got to do really important subject matter that’s mixed in with fun, so it’s receivable,” she shared of the episode content. “We had a ball.”

She added, “It felt really fun to show off what a well-oiled machine our show is. It felt really fun to welcome someone so special who’s been so important in our world, in our culture, in the kinds of stories we told on black-ish. We started when they were moving into the White House.”

The final season of black-ish premieres Tuesday, January 4 @ 9:30 pm ET/PT on ABC.
