After showing a montage of the Best Picture nominees, which included brief scenes of Emma in Poor Things, Jimmy joked, “Those were all the parts of Poor Things that we’re allowed to show on TV," obviously talking about the film's explicit sex scenes.

Emma, who has defended the scenes before, was seen shaking her head and seemingly mouthing, "What a prick."
