Terrance Howard Explains Oscar Awards Awkwardness 

Remember Terrance Howard‘s awkward presentation at the Academy Awards?

He stopped by “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” to explain why he was so weird.

After spending 18 hours memorizing the script, he claims his nerves and spotting Oprah in the audience took a hold of him.

“I’ve got this memorized. I’ve worked 18 hours to work this out. I’m bout to kill it, I’m bout to kill it. And I get out there and there’s Oprah… ‘Hi, Oprah.” Oh, oh read the lines, read the lines. I try to look up and I’m like ‘No I done worked on this, I’m not going to read the prompter. I’m going to say it from heart,” he said.

And we all saw what happened when he did that.
