Here’s Jimmy Kimmel’s Monologue at the 2017 Academy Awards

Jimmy Kimmel made his Oscars hosting debut last night, and in case you missed it, you can watch his full opening monologue above. Kimmel on our new president: “Maybe this is not a popular thing to say, but I want to say thank you to President Trump. I mean, remember last year when it seemed like the Oscars were racist?” On Hollywood’s inclusiveness: “We are very welcoming to outsiders here in Hollywood. We don’t discriminate against people based on what countries they come from, we discriminate against them based on their age and weight.” On the Oscars’ international audience: “This broadcast is being watched live by millions of Americans and around the world in more than 225 countries that now hate us, and I think that is an amazing thing.” Watch the full monologue above, and check out another Oscars clip below where Kimmel shames his nemesis Matt Damon for his 2011 movie We Bought a Zoo:
