What a bummer! John Oliver was completely hilarious backstage at the Emmys when he noted that he was missing Beyonce at the 2016 Awards show. Keep reading for all the details from the laugh out loud speech from the Emmy award winner.
“For this week I thought Beyonce was supposed to be here,” comedian John Oliver noted backstage of the 68th Annual Emmys Award show. John was talking to the press after his show, Last Week Tonight, beat out Emmy host Jimmy Kimmel and his show Jimmy Kimmel Live for an Emmy in the category of Outstanding Variety Talk Series.
“I saw a seating chart and I was supposed to be sitting behind her so all I really been thinking about the last forty eight hours is that I was going to see Beyonce’s head for four hours,” John continued. Like what? How crazy is that? Why Beyonce was a no-show for the big show may be a mystery but that didn’t stop the funny man from joking around about Queen Bey.
“She hasn’t turned up. This is nice (looking at Emmy trophy) but this evening generally has a sense of loss in it for me. I was going to stare at the back of her head and experience happiness in a form that I probably never felt before. But probably wisely for Yonce she has given this evening a pass!” OMG, that is too much. We knew John was a funny guy but who knew he was such a fan of Jay Z‘s wife?
HollywoodLifers, what do you think of John’s hilarious backstage speech at the Emmys? Can you believe Beyonce passed up sitting in front of John at the Emmys? What was your favorite part of the big show?
