Everything is more exciting at the Oscars—even, and especially, photobombing.

EW was interviewing Jeff Goldblum on the Oscars red carpet when Ed Begley Jr. came over and hovered behind his friend. Goldblum eventually noticed him—and luckily, the Grand Budapest Hotel actor wasn’t upset about the interruption. “Now this is the best time I’ve ever had in my whole life,” Goldblum said. “The greatest man in the whole world.”

Begley returned the compliment: “Everything I learned, I learned from this man,” he said before dipping out. “Carry on. I photobombed your interview.” Maybe—but we’re not complaining.
