The 70-year-old actor was nowhere to be found when Salma Hayek announced his name as the winner for outstanding performance by a male actor in a miniseries or television movie for his performance in “Dopesick.”

"And the Actor goes to Michael Keaton, 'Dopesick'," Hayek revealed as she looked around for the Hollywood veteran.

While the audience applauded, Keaton was nowhere to be found.

"Are you kidding me? I have stage fright," the 55-year-old actress said, before noticing him running toward the stage. "Come on Michael! Come on Michael!"

Once at the podium, the Oscar winner disclosed the reason for his delay.

"Thank you very much," Keaton said. "Sorry! Quick trip to the men's room. It was packed, by the way. This is so nice, thank you very much. Really, I'm truly grateful."
