Did Taraji P. Henson drag Ryan Seacrest on the Oscars red carpet?

Ryan Seacrest is ready for 'showtime' as he hosts Oscars red carpet despite opposition

Earlier, Jennifer Lawrence told Howard Stern that she wouldn't likely skip an interview with Seacrest.

Time's Up pins and talk about the #MeToo movement were tamer on the red carpet than at the Golden Globes in January. And most major stars did not stop to chat with the host.

Although Ryan Seacrest still hosted E!'s Oscars pre-show amid the sexual harassment allegations made against him, he barely scored any celeb interviews on the red carpet; a platform he usually dominates. Although the E! red carpet host made it through almost two hours of coverage without anyone making a negative comment towards him on-camera, the 47-year-old couldn't help but address the elephant in the room. At the Golden Globes and elsewhere, the red carpet has already served as a place for celebrities to address their support for gender equality in entertainment this awards season.

The allegations against Seacrest were brought to light by his former personal stylist, Suzie Hardy, last week.

While being interviewed by Seacrest, the actress answered a question by saying, "You know what, the universe has a way of taking care of the good people, you know what I mean?".

"I will do for you that which no one did for me after May 30", Griffin wrote. Hardy - who doesn't work in the business any longer - accused Seacrest of sexual misconduct while she worked under him at E! from 2006-2017.

He has strongly denied the allegations, writing in a February 5 essay for The Hollywood Reporter that the accusations were false. The "American Idol" host has vehemently denied the claims against him.

During her interview with Seacrest, the notoriously outspoken Henson made what many interpreted as an overt dig at him over the allegations.

Taraji shut down rumors that she shaded Ryan, telling People magazine that her comments were "misconstrued".
