Remember the other night when La La Land accidentally hopped on stage to accept the Oscar for Best Picture (opens in new tab) even though Moonlight won? It was a highly WTF moment for all involved—including host Jimmy Kimmel.

"It was a lot of fun, until the end," he said during Jimmy Kimmel Live. "It was going very well, we were chugging along, and then all of a sudden, out of nowhere, it turned into one of those Maury Povich paternity test shows."

He added that the Oscars experienced the "weirdest TV finale since Lost," and said for a moment he forgot he was hosting. "You figure, well, you know, the host will go on stage and clear this up. Then I remember, 'Oh. I'm the host,'" he said. "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—but also trying really hard not to laugh, to be honest."
