The seating arrangements at this year’s Screen Actors Guild Awards are already stirring up drama.

During a red carpet interview with E!’s Brad Goreski, Kaley Cuoco found out her Big Bang Theory costar Jim Parsons wouldn’t be sitting with the cast at the Big Bang table, but instead with his Hidden Figures costars at the film’s table.

“Do you hear this? He just moves right into the Hidden Figures table!” she said, feigning outrage. “This is news to me, if you couldn’t tell.”

“They have kindly put our tables close together,” said Parsons, 43, with a laugh.

“Would it be weird if I sat at the Modern Family table? I’m just wondering. I’m confused!” quipped Cuoco, 31. “We’ll see. I’m just trying to stir up rumors. … All jokes aside, I love you so much.”
