Jimmy Kimmel gives his version of the events of Oscar's Best Picture debacle

02.28.2017

Jimmy Kimmel Oscars 2017

I doubt that I need to dive into the events of this past weekend as just about everyone has already had their say, but the 89th Academy Awards certainly ended on a memorable note when LA LA LAND was mistakenly announced as Best Picture. After several speeches from the producers of LA LA LAND, it was revealed that MOONLIGHT was the actual recipient of the award. We've already covered the specifics of just what happened, but Oscar host Jimmy Kimmel shared his own perspective on the events during his monologue for Jimmy Kimmel Live. Check it out.

It remains to be seen what the fallout of this mistake will mean for PricewaterhouseCoopers, the company responsible for tabulating the results, preparing the envelopes and handing them to presenters, but I'd imagine that we'll be talking about this for quite some time. Jimmy Kimmel didn't reveal much beyond what we already know, but he did say that the original ending planned for the ceremony would have had him seated in the audience next to Matt Damon, who, as Kimmel reminds us, was the true loser of Oscar night.

Emma Stone acting like this is the worst day of her life

Get a freaking grip you idiot, there are far worse things that can happen in life. And by the way, she tried to make it sound like Warren Beatty was telling a lie about having a card with her name on it. In fact, not only was it confirmed he had a card with her name on it, but he showed it to the crowd and Jimmy Kimmel also confirmed it. I now officially can't stand this Clinton supporting twat.

I mostly had it on in the background as fodder whilst doing other things, The most things I laughed my ass off at was Matt Damon getting his balls busted all the time by Kimmel. That was the best parts of the show!

I still watch the Oscar but something's missing. It used to be a glamorous event but nowadays it's just a platform to political statement. That's fine because worldwide audience is watching but I wish they'd stick with just the award ceremony.
