Steve Harvey feels for Warren Beatty
Monday was a great day to be Steve Harvey, even if Jimmy Kimmel did blame him Sunday for the Oscars’ huge best picture mistake. Harvey, who named the wrong winner for Miss Universe 2015, surrendered his TV-gaffe throne on Sunday, and early Monday he was celebrating and dishing: “Free at last! Free at last! Thank God almighty, I am free at last,” Harvey said on his radio show after “La La Land” was announced as best picture at the Academy Awards, only to see the award later go to the real winner, “Moonlight.”
The comic and TV host tweeted earlier that if Warren Beatty, who presented the award along with Faye Dunaway, needs someone to talk to following the mix-up, Harvey is there for him. “Call me Warren Beatty. I can help you get through this!” Harvey tweeted.
One difference between the two mistakes: Harvey couldn’t read whatwas on his card, which he said looked different than what he’d seen in rehearsal. Dunaway did read whatwas on the card, but Beatty had been given the wrong one.
“Call meWarren Beatty. I can help you get through this!” tweeted Steve Harvey, above, who took the heat for naming the wrong winner for Miss Universe 2015.
