Turns out, preparation is not always key — at least not when it comes to Oscars speeches.

Twitter immediately reacted after the winners of the Best Hair and Makeup category stumbled through their acceptance speech at the 2019 Oscars ceremony on Sunday night.

When Greg Cannom, Kate Biscoe, Patricia Dehaney-Le May took the stage to accept the award for their work on the film Vice, they attempted to share speech duties by taking turns reading off a sheet of paper.

But within seconds, the group lost track of who was supposed to be reading, leading to a rather awkward acceptance speech.

“This could potentially be the worst acceptance speech of all time,” wrote one Twitter user.

“God that was a rough acceptance speech,” added another.

As the music started playing to cue the group to wrap up, they continued to finish reading.

“You read this,” they directed to each other as they attempted to take turns.

Along with Hair and Makeup, Vice earned an impressive 8 nominations for the night, including acting nods for stars Christian Bale and Amy Adams and Best Picture.

The 91st Academy Awards are broadcasting live from Los Angeles on Sunday, Feb. 24 at 8:00 p.m. ET/5:00 p.m. PT on ABC.
