Guess that joke that didn’t sit well!
In an Instagram Story shared March 28, Amy wrote, “Hey I appreciate the love for Kirsten Dunst. I love her too! That was a choreographed bit she was in on. Wouldn’t disrespect that queen like that.”
Amy began her bit by explaining to the crowd the concept of seat fillers—people designated to fill seats when celebrities are elsewhere during the ceremony. Amy then made her way over to Kirsten and her husband and co-star Jesse Plemons‘ table.
“Here’s a seat filler,” she said, referencing Kirsten. “Honey, do you want to go to the bathroom?”
Amy then pulled Kirsten up by the arm and stole her seat to chat with Jesse.
“Jesse, I loved you in Power of the Dog,” Amy said.
To which Jesse replied, “You know, that was my wife, Amy.”
Keeping the flow rolling, Amy then quipped, “You’re married to that seat filler?”
Both Jesse and Kirsten were present for the ceremony as nominees for their roles in The Power of the Dog, with Jesse nabbing a nod for Best Supporting Actor and Kirsten for Best Supporting Actress.
And though the pair didn’t take home trophies, they at least got a tailor-made joke from Amy.
