After Poor Things was presented, Kimmel cracked a joke, saying, “Those were all the parts of Poor Things we’re allowed to show on TV.”

The camera cuts to Stone, seemingly not happy with the joke. After the moment went viral on social media, many interpreted Stone’s lips as calling Kimmel a “prick,” although that is not confirmed.

Watch the moment below.

During the opening monologue, Kimmel made reference to Stone, and their interaction had been more pleasant. The late-night show host mentioned the Poor Things star as she was nominated for an Oscar for a fifth time.
