There was a one-hour red carpet pre-show before NBC's "Saturday Night Live" 40th anniversary special Sunday night.

Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie from NBC's "The Today Show" interviewed the celebrities who were there.

While they were interviewing actor and comedian Jim Carrey, things got a bit awkward when Carrey brought up suspended "NBC Nightly News" anchor Brian Williams.

No one knew how to react to Carrey's comment.

So, everyone just kind of stood there awkwardly as Lauer transitioned to something else.

Check out the awkwardness below!
