While presenting the award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy series, the late-night hosts poked fun at the fact that the awards show, which honors the best in television, didn't have an MC for the first time in years.
The two hosts explained the real talent it takes to be a successful host, like having to "sit behind a desk and pretend to be interested" in Jason Bateman's vacation stories.
"Oh, you swam with dolphins, how fascinating," Colbert said sarcastically as Bateman looked on from the audience. "He told that story on your show, too?" Kimmel added.
Kimmel pointed out the Titanic didn't have a host, either. "And look what happened to them!" he said.
"They won an Oscar," Colbert said and Kimmel asked, "But who gave it to them?" When the men realized it was probably a presenter who gave the "Titanic" their award, they concluded that presenters are now in jeopardy.
"That's who they come for next!" Kimmel said and Colbert added, "If we let this slide, they'll start using Alexa to start presenting the nominees."
