Going into last night’s Oscar ceremony, everyone predicted that the tone would be set by host Jimmy Kimmel.
Thankfully, he nailed it with a killer monologue that covered all the controversies from President Donald Trump and #OscarsSoWhite to “fake news” with a plea to come together as a nation without being overly political or cheesy.
This is being watched live by millions of people in 225 countries that now hate us, Kimmel joked. I want to say thank you to President Trump. Remember last year when it seemed like the Oscars were racist? Its gone thanks to him.
In an effort to show an attempt at healing and forgiveness, the host reached out to his “foe,” Matt Damon, patching things up before making a great fatjoke at his expense.
And then the crowning moment he stuck it to Trump in a move that had the whole theater standing in honor of the most “overrated” actress of our time.
Check out the full monologue here:
Let’s hope they ask him back next year.
