Allen drank champagne throughout the awards show, slurred her speech and repeatedly swore on camera, and at one point, she even blurted out the news of her brother's engagement to his sister - despite the couple's best efforts to keep the news a secret. John patiently endured Lily's antics, but as the night wore on, he grew increasingly irritated with his co-host's behavior and began pulling her aside for stern words in between presenting awards. When it was time for Allen to announce "the most important part of the night," Elton's frustration prompted him to chime in, "What? Are you going to have another drink?"

Lily retorted, "F--- off, Elton. I am forty years younger than you and have my whole life ahead of me." John seemed shocked, and sputtered, "I could still snort you under the table!" Allen was clearly unprepared for that, and all she could manage to say to John was "F--- off...I don't know what you are talking about."
