Jimmy Kimmel is set to host this year’s Oscars and as the date gets closer, people have been wondering how he plans to deal with politics in the show, considering every celebrity has been involving politics in their acceptance speeches/jokes.
When asked the question, Kimmel told People magazine that he has not given much thought on it, but a lot will depend on what happens the week before the show.“There are one, sometimes three, new interesting stories coming out of the White House every day it seems — so who knows what will be happening?” – He continued.
But the Jimmy Kimmel Live host told that no matter what happens he will be writing jokes until the 11 th hour. This would be because he has a tendency to change things at the last minute because he wants everything to be as perfect as possible.
Kimmel hosted the last Emmy Awards and that show turned out to be a total success from the hosting to the funny skits. That being said, we can be assumed that the Oscars this year will be much fun to watch too!
The 89 th Academy Awards will air live on ABC on Sunday, February 26 th . Movies like La La Land, Moonlight, Fences and more are expected to win big at the show. Till then stay tuned for upcoming news.
