It's not really a fair comparison, but it was an easy comparison: When the wrong winners were announced for Best Picture at last night's Oscars, everyone thought of Steve Harvey and his Miss Universe gaffe.
But Steve Harvey had the right card, he just read the wrong winner. Academy Awards presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway, as we know now, did not have the right envelope. They could've saved the moment, but still. It's not 100 percent the same.
But if anyone can feel their pain, it's Steve Harvey. Although, right now, he's too busy being thrilled that someone else is the focus of You Had One Job insults.
Harvey tweeted his reaction to the Oscar news early Monday morning:
Good morning everybody! Went to sleep early last night. So... what I miss? #Oscars— Steve Harvey (@IAmSteveHarvey) February 27, 2017
Call me Warren Beatty. I can help you get through this! #Oscars— Steve Harvey (@IAmSteveHarvey) February 27, 2017
At least he's getting some self-promotion out of other people's embarrassment.
On his morning show (via TMZ), Harvey did have more to say on the subject:
"Me and Warren Beatty going to take photos together... So in closing I'd like to say, in the words of Martin Luther King: Free at last, free at last, thank God almighty, I'm free at last!"
