Ansel Elgort revealed on Tuesday's The Tonight Show that he had a vested interest in who won the best visual effects Oscar, which he presented at the Academy Awards.

Elgort was sweating bullets because the names of the nominees in that category were difficult to pronounce and he was worried he'd pull a John Travolta and flub them. The only one of the nominated films with easy names to pronounce? Interstellar — which ultimately won.

For comparison's sake, Elgort showed Jimmy Fallon the names of the Interstellar team: Paul Franklin, Andrew Lockley, Ian Hunter and Scott Fisher. The Guardians team wasn't as straightforward: Stephane Ceretti, Nicolas Aithadi, Jonathan Fawkner and Paul Corbould.
