Jimmy Kimmel is speaking out saying the mix-up at the end of the Oscars was no prank.
Kimmel hosted the awards ceremony Sunday, which ended with the wrong movie being announced as the best picture winner.
Kimmel cracked, “It was the weirdest T-V finale since ”Lost.“’
Presenters Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty were given the wrong envelope — a duplicate of the best actress award.
The presenters said ”La La Land“ had won for best picture, but after almost three minutes of acceptance speeches, the goof was recognized and ”Moonlight“ was correctly named best picture. Last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Kimmel said people have been asking if he set it up.
Kimmel says had it been his prank he would have put a Bed Bath and Beyond coupon in the envelope.
