The misplacement was on the "Abbott Elementary" star's mind as she accepted the trophy for Outstanding Actor in a Comedy Series.

Have you seen Quinta Brunson's earrings?

The Abbott Elementary creator and star was looking to reclaim some jewelry at the NAACP Image Awards on Saturday, after she accidentally misplaced two sparkly accessories. In fact, the earrings were so top of mind for Brunson that they took priority when she walked on stage to claim her trophy for Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Series.

"Thank you so much! Thank you guys," Brunson, 34, said before requesting help. "I lost both my earrings. So if anybody sees my earrings, could you just…?"

For those needing more info, she added, "They're little dangly things, cost a lot — so if you guys see them…"

Unfortunately, based on photos of the actress walking the red carpet, Brunson's earrings may have gone missing before she even entered the venue. She wasn't wearing them when she posed for photographers in her sleek Naeem Khan gown, though she did have some jewelry in the form of several silver rings.

After addressing her missing accessories, Brunson used her acceptance speech to express gratitude to friends, collaborators, and the broader Black community.

"Let me just say thank you so much, it's such an honor. I love coming to this ceremony and getting to see all of my friends and all the people that I don’t get to see on a daily basis while we're working," she said. "I'm just extremely honored, yet again. I'm very proud of the work I get to do in Abbott. I'm very proud of my cast."

She added, "Thank you to my family. I hope my mom and dad are watching, and all the Black people in my life."

Winning in her category wasn't Brunson's only opportunity to take the stage, as Abbott Elementary also won Best Comedy Series.

Among the audience members enlisted to find the mysteriously missing earrings were fellow winners of the night Usher, Taraji P. Henson, Fantasia Barrino, India Ria Amarteifio, and Colman Domingo. Queen Latifah hosted the show, which included a performance from Andra Day.
