The result? The night's major stars responded with an obvious snub, and simply avoided interviews with Seacrest. NBCUniversal, the parent company of E!, opted to keep him as host of its red-carpet coverage after an investigation by an independent counsel. In order of appearance, he spoke with: Sofia Carson, Diane Warren, Miguel, Eiza Gonzalez, Kelly and Mark Consuelos, Allison Janney, Christopher Plummer, Andy Serkis, Richard Jenkins, the cast of Get Out (Bradley Whitford, Lil Rel Howery, Betty Gabriel), Donald Sutherland, Rita Moreno, Eiza Gonzalez, Mary J. Blige, Common, Andra Day, Taraji P. Henson, Whoopi Goldberg, and Tiffany Haddish.

The 43-year-old has been accused of sexual harassment by his former stylist Suzie Hardy, allegations he vehemently denies.

Hardy says the results of an E! investigation forced her to come forward now, CBS News correspondent Jericka Duncan reports.
But Henson later insisted to People magazine her comments were "misconstrued". Without naming Hardy, he denied the claims.
