Mindy Kaling was not nominated for an Oscar Sunday night, March 2, but she definitely wins for "Best Response to an Uncomfortable Question."
The "Mindy Project" star was hanging out before the Oscars (looking stunning in a sparkling Salvador Perez dress, might we add) when she was approached by E! News correspondent Alicia Quarles to chat about the night. The two began talking about Kaling's FOX hit comedy and the men her character romances.
"So who's your type?" Quarles asked Kaling.
"Who's my type? Good looking," Kaling responded, not skipping a beat.
"Okay, so any color?"
"Yeah," the actress said, laughing.
After the uncomfortable exchange, Twitter users were quick to respond with their thoughts.

An E! reporter just asked Mindy Kaling what color guys she's into. Did not know Lego Movie was up for awards but I hope she said royal blue.

Earlier, Kaling joked about what people might think when they see her walk by on the Oscars red carpet, saying: "That's that girl from that show where she kisses all the white men."
