“Warren Beatty has had so much sex he can’t think about it right,” Kimmel said during the ABC aftershow. “This is a guy who probably never had to sign anything, he just has people do that for him.”
All jokes aside, Kimmel isn’t sure exactly what went down.
“I don’t know the whole story — there’s a couple things I do know though. The envelope Warren Beatty was holding said best actress. That I do know,” Kimmel said. “He was confused because the card, which he showed to be me by the way, said, ‘Emma Stone, La La Land.’ We thought he was being coy and cute and milking it, but in reality he was as perplexed as anybody.”
The Jimmy Kimmel Live! host says the dramatic ending was more than he could’ve imagined.
“You know, you do a talk show every night and you thrive on these moments. This is exactly what you want.”
