Steve Harvey became a trailblazer for extremely embarrassing live TV flubs when he misread the cue card at the 2015 Miss Universe Pageant and crowned Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutiérrez as the night's winner instead of the actual winner Miss Philippines Pia Wurtzbach - and Jimmy Kimmel immediately referenced the "Family Feud" host's flub after Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway announced the wrong Best Picture winner at the Oscars Sunday.
But Harvey claimed on Twitter Monday morning to have slept through the historic Oscars fail, which will forever live in awards show infamy.
"Good morning everybody! Went to sleep early last night. So... what I miss? #Oscars," he tweeted.
Harvey added in a second tweet, "Call me Warren Beatty. I can help you get through this! #Oscars."

In an unbelievable ending to an otherwise predictable Academy Awards ceremony, former "Bonnie & Clyde" co-stars Dunaway and Beatty announced that "La La Land" had won Best Picture over "Moonlight." Oscars producers rushed the stage to correct the mistake, which was apparently caused by someone handing Beatty the wrong envelope. Instead of the Best Picture winner, Beatty was holding the envelope containing "La La Land" star Emma Stone's Best Actress win.
The musical's producer Marc Platt stopped mid-acceptance speech to drop the bomb: "We lost, by the way, but, you know." Producer Jordan Horowitz added, “Guys, I'm sorry. No, there’s a mistake. 'Moonlight,' you guys won Best Picture."
Kimmel tried to make light of the situation and grabbed the mic to joke, "Personally, I blame Steve Harvey for this."
