“We’re trying something new this year,” Lynch told the crowd. “This year, People’s Choice Awards has picked one entertainer who, for whatever reason, has never won a People’s Choice Award but who we believe is deserving of one. And this year, the award goes to the actor and comedian extraordinaire, star of The Odd Couple, ladies and gentlemen, Tom Lennon!”

The actor, 45, then appeared on stage, but in the middle of his acceptance speech, Lynch pulled a Harvey.

“I’m sorry. I have to apologize here. First runner-up is Tom Lennon. The winner is Miss Colombia! … Listen, it’s my fault, I didn’t bother to come to dress rehearsal and, man, I just read the card wrong,” she joked, as Lennon stood with an exaggerated stunned look behind her.

In case you missed it, Harvey accidentally crowned Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez instead of Miss Philippines Pia Wurtzbach during the pageant’s live telecast last month.
