Jimmy Kimmel Reveals What He Plans to Talk About While Hosting Oscars 2018!

Jimmy Kimmel is opening up about what he plans to talk about during the 2018 Oscars!

“A lot of people are going with this line of reasoning where they say, people in show business shouldn’t speak out about politics. And yet…they elected Donald Trump the president of the United States. So I think that argument has pretty well jumped out the window.”

“I’m still doing a comedy show and I need to be funny and entertain my audience, but I also think that we’ve matured enough…to the point where we can accept late-night talk show hosts speaking about a serious subject. And I think that it’s almost necessary now.”

He said, however, that #MeToo will not be something he pokes fun at during the show.

“This show is not about reliving people’s sexual assaults,” he said.

“It’s an awards show for people who have been dreaming about maybe winning an Oscar for their whole lives. And the last thing I want to do is ruin that for someone who is, you know, nominated for, you know, best leading actress or best supporting or best director or cinematographer, or whatever, by making it unpleasant. I’m not going to…stop any bad behavior with my jokes.”

Watch him explain below.

    His penchant for Botox has apparently reached some Kidman-esque level. Those arched eyebrows are very Joan Crawford.
