The biggest stars in the movie business gathered for the 95th Academy Awards last night - but if you ain't on the list, you ain't getting in.
Reporting from outside the star-studded party, Noel said: "We're going to try and see if we can get into the party.
"Apparently Emma Watson and Donatella Versace and a few famous people are in there. Let's see if we can gatecrash the party."
As Susanna Reid and Ed Balls watched on in the studio - and the people of Britain watched on from home - Noel made his way towards the entrance, where he was promptly intercepted.
"Sir, the party is over. No entry, please," the security guard told him.
Attempting an audacious blag, Noel replied: "Oh, but Elton said we can come in?"
Laughing in the face of the blatant lie, the guard said: "No, you can't."
Noel then chucked a U-turn and concluded: "We did try, guys. We did try."
But while that was the end of the line for Noel, there will no doubt be plenty of Hollywood stars who will be going for a while longer yet.
Everything Everywhere All At Once was the big winner on the night, scooping a bundle of awards.
The multiverse sci-fi epic, directed by Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, claimed seven prizes including three acting gongs, best directing and best picture, the biggest of the night.
It was a disappointing evening for Irish talent with The Banshees Of Inisherin going home empty-handed despite its nine nominations.
Michelle Yeoh claimed the Oscar for best leading actress, fending off competition from two-time Oscar winner Cate Blanchett to become the first woman from an Asian background to win the prize.
Taking to the stage, she said: "For all the little boys and girls who look like me, this is a beacon of hope and possibilities.
"Dream big, dreams do come true. Ladies, never let anyone tell you you are past your prime."
She added: "This is history in the making."
Yeoh's co-star Jamie Lee Curtis, 64, won her first Oscar, for supporting actress, paying tribute to all the special people in her life.
Brendan Fraser won the best actor Oscar for his performance as a reclusive English teacher with morbid obesity in The Whale, completing a dramatic career comeback after years out of the spotlight.
The actor, 54, was visibly emotional as he thanked director Darren Aronofsky for 'throwing me a creative lifeline'.
