Ryan Seacrest is a fixture on the Oscars red carpet as much as big stars like Meryl Streep or Tom Hanks. But celebs steered clear of the E! host this year after detailed allegations against him came out on Monday. E! and its parent company NBCUniversal have stuck by their guy, but as predicted, many stars in the wake of the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements weren’t willing to take the risk.

As Mashable pointed out, major stars were missing from Seacrest’s list of interviewees. Only two of the 20 people Seacrest interviewed—Allison Janney and Christopher Plummer—were nominated for an Academy Award.

When Seacrest interviewed Proud Mary star Taraji P. Henson, the actress subtly dragged the host.

“You know what, the universe has a way of taking care of the good people, you know what I mean?” she told him.
