Rami Malek winning the Best Actor Oscar at last night’s Academy Awards ceremony wasn’t the only eventful moment to happen to him.

After the telecast ended, the actor was walking off the stage back to his seat when he fell off the stage. Fortunately, paramedics were on hand and he was okay.

Fortunately, for Malek, he didn’t fall on his way up to accept his Oscar, unlike during the 2013 Oscars when Jennifer Lawrence tripped going up the stage steps.

Of course, there’s nothing like bruising the ego to keep you humble, even after winning your industry’s highest honor.
