There were not many surprises at the 90th annual Academy Awards on Sunday night.
As expected, The Shape of Water won Best Picture and Frances McDormand won Best Actress, for example.
But the real action took place ahead of the annual show, as E! decided to let Ryan Seacrest interview celebrities on the red carpet…
… despite some sexual harassment allegations having been leveled against the omnipresent host.
(A former stylist claims Seacrest made inappropriate remarks at her and took inappropriate actions with her, such as pushing her head toward his crotch at one point.)
Seacrest did not land nearly as many pre-Oscars interviews as normal, with many stars shunning him on the red carpet out of respect for the #MeToo movement.
But Taraji P. Henson did choose to speak to Seacrest.
And she also chose to destroy him on live television.
After being asked a question by Seacrest, Henson smirked at the possibly shady man in front of her and replied:
“The universe has a way of taking care of taking care of good people,” she said, as she touched the E! host on the chin. “You know what I mean?”
Seacrest said that he agreed, while social media unanimously agreed that Henson had just completely torched Seacrest on his very own show.
A few users pointed to Henson giving Seacrest a hug after the interview as proof that they are no hard feelings.
And Henson later told People Magazine, amidst chatter that she dissed Seacrest during their chat, specifically with the way she touched his face:
“I did it to keep his chin up. It’s an awkward position to be in. He’s been cleared but anyone can say anything."
Later, Seacrest addressed the situation on Twitter, writing that he had “nothing but love for his friend” and thanking her for “hanging out with us on the E! Red Carpet.”
Are you buying this, though?
Just watch this exchange!
