Seacrest was not only placed on a 30-second delay, but only interviewed 21 celebs on the red-carpet interactions. Timothee Chalamet, Margot Robbie and others walked past him, as did Oscar victor Viola Davis and all of the nominees for best actress.

On Monday, Seacrest, whose red carpet appearance at the Academy Awards was riddled with controversy following sexual misconduct accusations that he is facing, tweeted a response to the apparent jabs that Taraji P. Henson, star of the hit FOX show Empire, made Sunday night.

Some stars did stop by to chat, like Allison Janney, Mary J. Blige and Whoopi Goldberg.

Spencer told Seacrest he looked handsome but did not do an interview.

"The universe has a way of taking care of taking care of good people", Taraji said during her interview, while touching his chin. I'm so proud of you!

She claimed Seacrest groped her genitals and pressed his erection against her, among other allegations. Without naming Hardy, he denied the claims. Following the social media outcry that she was throwing "shade", Taraji clarified to People that her comments were "misconstrued", adding: "I did it to keep his chin up. He's been cleared but anyone can say anything".

There were rumors that many would avoid the host after his former stylist Suzie Hardy came forward last week with the specifics of a harassment claim she raised with E! owner NBCUniversal last November.
