Step aside, Amal! Ellen DeGeneres inserted herself into George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin's special moment at the 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards on Sunday, Jan. 11, by editing herself into the actor's vacant seat at the Beverly Hilton Hotel during his lifetime achievement speech.
"There were a lot of good speeches," the comedienne, 56, noted to her audience on Tuesday, Jan. 13. "And his was amazing. It just did not end the way that I thought it would."
DeGeneres then replayed the buzzworthy moment from the Globes, when Cecil B. DeMille recipient Clooney gushed about love in a room filled with his fellow A-listers including Jennifer Aniston, Matthew McConaughey, and more. Only this time, Portia de Rossi’s wife was seated right beside Alamuddin — who made headlines herself just by showing up.
The revised clip from the Ellen show begins with Clooney at the podium. "So congratulations to all of you, I've had a pretty good year myself," he notes, as the footage flashes to Alamuddin and DeGeneres, grinning bashfully in his empty seat with a champagne glass in hand.
"It's a humbling thing when you find someone to love," Clooney continues in his now-viral speech. Meanwhile, DeGeneres looks flattered and humbled as she gazes around the room with gratitude.
Watch what happens above when DeGeneres realizes the speech is directed towards Alamuddin.
