Conan O’Brien felt a need to get to the bottom of exactly what happened with Sunday’s huge Oscars snafu, when Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway announced the wrong Best Picture winner. What the late-night host uncovered is even more confusing than you thought.

The TBS personality told his audience to lay off of Beatty, for starters.

“In his defense, if you saw the card he was given to read, it was pretty confusing,” O’Brien continued.

The show then rolled some doctored footage of the now-infamous moment, and Conan’s set-up proved to be an understatement. Just you try and figure out how to interpret the double negatives and flow chart.

Ah, screw it, make it Dunaway’s problem. Sorry, “La La Land” and “Moonlight” producers.
