At the 91st Academy Award, Rami Malek took home acting's highest honor: The Oscar for Best Actor in a Leading Role. The win must have left him a bit dazed, because he shortly thereafter walked straight off the stage.
Has anyone seen the video of Rami Malek falling off stage last night? We need it over here for reasons. #Oscars— Princess Sparklefists ︽✵︽ || 1/4/19 (@Princess Sparklefists ︽✵︽ || 1/4/19)1551093950.0
After the ceremony ended, Malek was walking when suddenly and without warning, he ran out of stage and found himself falling into the seating area.
Fortunately, the moment was captured on roving cameras for posterity's sake.

And, it has to be said, that the video is pretty funny once you know Malek escaped his fall relatively unscathed.
