Don’t you know who I am? It didn’t matter that Jim Parsons‘ movie Hidden Figures was up for three Oscars, because without his ID he wasn’t getting into the awards.
The 43-year-old actor almost missed the ceremony on Sunday, February 26, after a string of mess-ups left him locked out of his house with no form of identification.
The Big Bang Theory star documented his debacle in a series of hilarious Instagram posts, that he shared while all the other stars were walking the red carpet.
“Locked out of house without ID which, apparently, you need to get into the Oscars… waiting on someone to get here and let me in,” he wrote alongside a selfie of himself dressed and raring to go. “Tux by #isaia , styling by Annie Psaltaris… Academy Awards, 2017… off to an auspicious beginning…!”
Parsons joked about his dire situation, saying he wished he’d taught his two pooches to open a door.
Fortunately, after an hour and a half wait, during which he feared he’d miss the show altogether, he was finally able to retrieve his ID and gain access to the Dolby Theatre.
Although his film failed to take home an Oscar, he did enjoy the ceremony, and playfully posted an image of himself “sharing a laugh” with Meryl Streep.
