Jimmy Kimmel burns Donald Trump after Oscars rating joke

Jimmy Kimmel burns Donald Trump after Oscars rating joke

Actors wore orange American Flag pins on the red carpet to advocate for gun control, Best Original Screenplay nominee Kumail Nanjiani and Black Panther star Lupita Nyong'o stated that they stood with the Dreamers while presenting an award.

"I made it to the Pence joke and I was like, ok, the Kardashians are on", she added. Last year's Best Actor award victor, Casey Affleck, withdrew from presenting this year's Best Actress Oscar amid sexual-harassment allegations. Directed by Sebastián Leilo, the movie centers on Marina Vidal (Daniela Vega), a trans woman who is kicked out of her apartment when her boyfriend suddenly dies. In another nice dovetail, Vega tonight became the first openly transgender presenter ever at the Oscars. Jordan Peele's writing and directing allowed every person involved in the film bring the best performances of 2017.

Shikhar Dhawan's quick-fire 90 takes India to 174/5
With India teetering at 9/2, Manish Pandey stepped in to join Dhawan and form a strong partnership that would steady the innings. The bowler had Jeevan Mendis plenty to thank as Mendis ran back from mid-off to finish a nice diving catch in the long-off area.


"I just won an Oscar. I thought it wasn't going to work", he said. CEO Dan Weber said, "if Hollywood wishes to get seniors back in their good graces, it needs to reconnect with them by rediscovering themes that define the spirit of their generation: imagination, morality, decency, justice and liberty - and by refraining from the condescension that turns off America's seniors".

The 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' host has no regrets about voicing his political views in the past, though he still plans to be "funny" too.

The host, along with Wonder Woman actress Gal Gadot, first dropped in on the theatre and said: "I have an announcement to make".

The Academy didn't only omit Hooper, who also directed films like Poltergeist and Lifeforce, but also left out John Mahoney (Frasier, Say Anything), Robert Guillaume (The Lion King, Benson), and Powers Boothe (Marvel's The Avengers, Tombstone). ABC will likely see a lift in the numbers once the final data becomes available later today, but as it now stands, the 2018 Oscars telecast is at an all-time low in the ratings. Stars Kumail Nanjiani and Lupita Nyong'o took the stage to share a message of support to Dreamers ahead of announcing "Shape of Water" as the victor of best production design. The year-to-year decline will also be substantial, likely at least 15 to 20 percent behind last year's event. Glen Keane, who worked on Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast and The Little Mermaid animated the film, while Oscar-winning composer John Williams provided the soundtrack.
