Moonlight director Barry Jenkins delivered a short and sweet acceptance speech after winning Best Picture during Sunday night’s Academy Awards, but what we are now learning is that the speech almost didn’t happen.

On Monday night, Oscars host Jimmy Kimmel addressed the final moments of the show when Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway announced the wrong winner for Best Picture.

As we all saw, commotion instantly plagued the stage after producers from La La Land accepted the biggest award of the night that oops, actually belonged to Moonlight.

After the real winner was revealed, Jenkins and company jumped up on stage to accept the coveted trophy. But according to Kimmel, it was Denzel who reminded the late night talk show host to let Barry give his very well deserved acceptance speech.

Watch below to hear Jimmy’s full recount of how Sunday night’s mishap went down.

But years after despising each other, the pair made up while on NBC’s The Voice. “She’s so talented, she’s a really sweet person. We made up on The Voice. I hadn’t seen her in years and years an years. We became moms, we grew up, we hugged it out.”
