Subtitles:
THANK YOU FOR WATCHING. THANKS FOR COMING. [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ] I DON'T KNOW IF YOU KNOW THIS, I HOSTED THE OSCARS LAST NIGHT. [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ] I'LL ADMIT I WAS FISHING. WHAT A WEIRD THING THOUGH. HAVE ANY OF YOU EVER HOSTED THE OSCARS BEFORE? WELL, LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT IT. EXCEPT FOR THE END, IT WAS A LOT OF FUN. [ LAUGHTER ] WENT VERY WELL. WE WERE CHUGGING ALONG. THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN OUT OF NOWHERE, IT TURNED INTO ONE OF THOSE MAURY POVICH PATERNITY TEST SHOWS. [ LAUGHTER ] IT WAS THE WEIRDEST TV FINALE SINCE "LOST." AS I'M SURE YOU'VE HEARD, "LA LA LAND" WAS SIMULTANEOUSLY SOMEHOW THE BIGGEST WINNER AND LOSER LAST NIGHT. YOU KNOW IT'S A STRANGE NIGHT WHEN THE WORD "ENVELOPE" IS TRENDING ON TWITTER. IN CASE YOU MISSED IT, WARN BEATTY AND FAYE DUNAWAY, THE 50th ANNIVERSARY OF "BONNIE AND CLYDE," THE ACADEMY ASKED THEM TO PRESENT BEST PICTURE, BIGGEST AWARD OF THE NIGHT, THE LAST ONE THEY GIVE OUT. SO WARREN AND FAYE COME OUT WITH THE ENVELOPE. AND, WELL, HERE'S WHERE THE STORY STARTS. >> AND THE ACADEMY AWARD -- FOR BEST PICTURE -- >> YOU'RE AWFUL. COME ON. >> "LA LA LAND." >> Jimmy: IN RETROSPECT WHAT WE KNOW IS WARREN WAS CONFUSED SO HE HANDED IT TO FAYE AND LET HER READ IT. [ LAUGHTER ] IN OTHER WORDS, CLYDE THREW BONNIE UNDER THE BUS. [ LAUGHTER ] [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ] SLICK MOVE. VERY SLICK MOVE. SO FAYE DUNAWAY ANNOUNCES "LA LA LAND" AS BEST PICTURE, IT WAS THE FAVORITE TO WIN, "LA LA LAND" PRODUCERS GOT ON STAGE, WHICH MADE SENSE. A FEW OF THEM GAVE SPEECHES. AND I'M NOW SITTING IN THE AUDIENCE WATCHING THESE SPEECHES. THE PLAN IS FOR ME TO END THE SHOW FROM THE AUDIENCE IN A SEAT NEXT TO MATT DAMON, WHO I WANT YOU TO MAKE NO MISTAKE, WHATEVER CONFUSION ABOUT WHO WON, MATT DAMON LOST. [ LAUGHTER ] [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ] HE IS A LOSER. BUT WE'RE SITTING THERE. AND WE NOTICE SOME COMMOTION GOING ON. AND MATT SAYS, I THINK I HEARD THE STAGE MANAGER SAY THEY GOT THE WINNER WRONG. THE STAGE MANAGER'S ON THE STAGE -- THE STAGE MANAGER'S NEVER ON CAMERA, IT'S VERY UNUSUAL. WE'RE SITTING THERE. YOU FIGURE, WELL, YOU KNOW. THE HOST WILL GO ON STAGE AND CLEAR THIS UP. THEN I REMEMBER, OH, I'M THE HOST. [ LAUGHTER ] [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ] SO I GO, ALL RIGHT. WELL, I JUST WALK UP THE STAIRS. AND AS SOON AS I GET UP THERE, THIS HAPPENS. >> GUYS, GUYS, I'M SORRY, NO. THERE'S A MISTAKE. "MOONLIGHT," YOU GUYS WON BEST PICTURE. "MOONLIGHT" WON. THIS IS NOT A JOKE. THIS IS NOT A JOKE, I'M AFRAID THEY READ THE WRONG THING. THIS IS NOT A JOKE. "MOONLIGHT" HAS WON BEST PICTURE. "MOONLIGHT," BEST PICTURE. >> Jimmy: KIND OF SCARY IN A WAY. THAT WAS THE PRODUCER OF "LA LA LAND" WHO THOUGHT HE WON, STANDING THERE HOLDING AN OSCAR THEY'RE GOING TO TAKE AWAY FROM HIM. MY FIRST INSTINCT WAS TO TELL HIM TO RUN. [ LAUGHTER ] TAKE THE OSCAR AND GET OUT. BUT HE DIDN'T. NOW THERE'S MASS CONFUSION. THE AUDIENCE IS CONFUSED. THE PEOPLE STANDING AROUND ME ARE CONFUSED. I ASSUME EVERYONE AT HOME IS CONFUSED. AND I'M PROBABLY SUPPOSED TO DO SOMETHING. BECAUSE NO ONE'S DOING ANYTHING. AND THEN WARREN BEATTY STEPS UP TO EXPLAIN. >> HELLO. I WANT -- >> WARREN, WHAT DID YOU DO? >> I WANT TO TELL YOU WHAT HAPPENED. I OPENED THE ENVELOPE. AND IT SAID, "EMMA STONE, LA LA LAND." THAT'S WHY I TOOK SUCH A LONG LOOK AT FAYE. AND AT YOU. I WASN'T TRYING TO BE FUNNY. >> Jimmy: WELL, YOU WERE FUNNY. >> THANK YOU VERY MUCH, THANK YOU VERY MUCH. >> Jimmy: WOW. >> THIS IS "MOONLIGHT," THE BEST PICTURE. >> Jimmy: YEAH, WELL, THERE YOU GO. "MOONLIGHT" WAS THE BEST PICTURE. NOW SO WE HAVE THE PRODUCERS OF TWO MOVIES ON STAGE. WHO THE HELL EVEN KNOWS WHO IS WHO FROM WHICH MOVIE? I'M STANDING THERE LIKE AN IDIOT, FEELING BAD FOR THESE GUYS, ALSO TRYING REALLY HARD NOT TO LAUGH TO BE HONEST. [ LAUGHTER ] AND I SEE, NOW I SEE DENZEL WASHINGTON IN THE FRONT ROW TRYING TO GET MY ATTENTION. HE'S GESTURING, HE'S POINTING. I DON'T KNOW WHAT HE'S POINTING. HE YELLS "BARRY!" WHAT? BARRY! IGURE OUT BURIY BERRY JENKINS, DIRECTOR OF "MOONLIGHT," IS STANDING BEHIND ME, DENZEL WANTS HIM AT THE MICROPHONE TO MAKE A SPEECH, WHICH MAKES SENSE. THANK GOD DENZEL WAS THERE TO MAKE SENSE. [ LAUGHTER ] [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ] I'M LISTENING TO DENZEL, AS I SHOULD. I GOT BARRY, HE SPOKE, NOT FOR VERY LONG. ANOTHER QUICK SPEECH. THEN EVERYONE JUST STOOD THERE AGAIN, SHELL SHOCKED. AND I ENDED THE SHOW. [ LAUGHTER ] AS I WALKED OFFSTAGE PEOPLE STARTED SPECULATING SAYING, OH, DID YOU PULL A PRANK? I WAS LIKE, HEY, NO, I DIDN'T! I DID NOT PULL A PRANK! IF I'D PULLED A PRANK, I WOULDN'T HAVE JUST HAD THE WRONG WINNER'S NAME ON THE ENVELOPE, THERE WOULD HAVE BEEN A BED, BATH AND BEYOND COUPON IN THERE. [ LAUGHTER ] IT WAS NOT A PRANK. THE PRODUCERS OF "LA LA LAND" WERE VERY GRACIOUS, WHICH THEY DID NOT HAVE TO BE, ONSTAGE AND OFF, THEY WERE VERY NICE. THEY HANDLED IT WELL. IT WAS A VERY AMICABLE CUSTODY ARRANGEMENT. THEY DIDN'T ASK FOR VISITATION OR ANYTHING. SO AFTER THE SHOW, I WENT BACK IN THE GREEN ROOM TO TALK TO WARREN BEATTY. STILL NOBODY KNOWS WHAT HAPPENED. AND HE SHOWED ME THE EVIDENCE. YOU KNOW, WHEN YOU DO A SHOW, YOU AREN'T JUST THE HOST, YOU'RE THE LEAD DETECTIVE. YOU'RE LIKE THE SHERIFF OF THE SHOW. [ LAUGHTER ] WARREN BEATTY COULD BE IN PRISON IF I WANTED HIM. THE CARD HE HAD SAID "LA LA LAND." WHICH IS WEIRD. BECAUSE EMMA STONE, WHO WON BEST ACTRESS FOR "LA LA LAND," WAS IN THE PRESS ROOM DOING INTERVIEWS SAYING THIS -- >> I WAS HOLDING MY BEST ACTRESS IN A LEADING ROLE CARD THAT ENTIRE TIME. SO WHATEVER STORY -- I DON'T MEAN TO START STUFF. WHATEVER STORY THAT WAS, I HAD THAT CARD. >> SO SHE SAID SHE HAD THE CARD. BUT I WAS WITH WARREN AND HE HAD THE CARD. TURNS OUT THEY BOTH HAD THE CARD. FOR WHATEVER REASON. THEY HAVE TWO OF EACH CARD IN EACH ENVELOPE. THERE'S A REGULAR ENVELOPE AND A BACKUP. JUST TO MAKE IT MORE CONFUSING. [ LAUGHTER ] SO THE ACCOUNTANTS GAVE WARREN THE WRONG CARD. AND THEY APOLOGIZED FOR IT TODAY. SO IT WASN'T WARREN BEATTY'S FAULT. FAYE DUNAWAY MATE QUITE A GETAWAY. [ LAUGHTER ] SHE GOT THE HELL OUT OF THERE, READ THE WRONG NAME AND SPLIT, SHOULDN'T NOD PART OF IT. SHE WAS SMART TOO. I SPENT THE WHOLE REST OF THE
