Amy Schumer is giving fans a behind-the-scenes look at what went into hosting the Oscars, alongside her co-hosts Wanda Sykes and Regina Hall.

While most of the conversation has been focused on Will Smith slapping Chris Rock, on Tuesday, Amy shared some of the preparation that went into putting on the show.

This included footage of the comedian being lowered down for her Spider-Man skit, sitting in the writer’s room, and rehearsing with Wanda and Regina.

The Will and Chris drama aside, things seemed to have gone smoothly for Amy on the big night, although she was forced to clarify one joke to annoyed fans.

During Sunday’s ceremony, the 40-year-old comedian teased the actress and referred to her as a ‘seat-filler’ as she sat next to her husband Jesse Plemons.

Addressing some criticism from fans, she wrote on Instagram: ‘Hey I appreciate the love for Kirsten Dunst. I love her too!

‘That was a choreographed bit she was in on. Wouldn’t disrespect that queen like that.’

During the night, Schumer took Dunst’s hand and went to pull her out of her seat, suggesting she was a seat filler – which is an audience member filling in for a celebrity when they have to pop out so there aren’t any empty spaces on television.

The Trainwreck star quipped: ‘OK, here’s a seat filler. Honey, do you want to go to the bathroom?’

She then took Kirsten’s spot, and leaned over to the latter’s husband Jesse and added: ‘Jesse, I loved you in Power of the Dog.’

Jesse – who was nominated alongside his wife for the respective rolls in the movie – replied: ‘You know what was my wife, Amy?’

Schumer joked: ‘You’re married to that seat filler?’

Before the ceremony, the comedian had promised not to hold back during her hosting gig, which marked the first time in three years that the Academy Awards have had a designated host.

She previously said: ‘I’m going to get myself in some trouble as per the [usual].

‘Wanda, Regina are hilarious, and we’re having a blast preparing.

‘I mean, I don’t know who made the decision to let me personally be a host, but it’s not a good one… because it’ll burn all bridges. I’ll burn every bridge.’
