Chrissy Teigen and John Legend attend the 89th Annual Academy Awards at Hollywood & Highland Center on Feb. 26, 2017 in Hollywood, Calif. 

In the aftermath of a massive mix-up at Sunday night’s Academy Awards, leave it to Chrissy Teigen to find some humor.

The model/TV personality posted two consecutive Twitter videos on Monday (Feb. 27), the first of which is a selfie of Teigen joking, “I’m joined by Oscar winner John Legend… not this year,” with her husband solemnly repeating, “Not this year.”

The second shows Legend greeting fans on a Hollywood tour bus, with Teigen shouting, “He won an Oscar! Not this year, though!”

Legend, however, is an Oscar winner, having won best original song with Common in 2015 for “Glory” from Selma -- hence the “not this year” comment.

It’s all in good humor, though. The singer took to Twitter to extend congratulations to the real winning film:
