John Oliver Exposes ‘Magic Trick’ Jimmy Kimmel Pulled At Oscars
“The great thing about Kimmel is that he’s obviously funny but also you’re confident that there’s this low-lying contempt for the whole event,” Oliver mentioned on Monday’s “Late Night With Seth Meyers” after Kimmel fronted the ninety fifth Academy Awards ceremony on Sunday evening.
Kimmel someway “doesn’t poison the room with that visible contempt and that is a kind of magic trick I couldn’t do,” continued Oliver, the host of HBO’s “Last Week Tonight.”
“I could not at any point say, ‘It’s going to be a magical night.’ It’s not, though, is it?” he added. “These are some of the most over-praised people on earth and we’re going to give them shiny trophies like they’re dogs.”
