In a new promo for this year's Academy Awards telecast, Kimmel talks about the trauma of hosting the 2017 Oscars, which ended with the wrong best picture victor being read, and the awestruck team behind Moonlight - the actual victor - shuffling onstage amid total chaos.

Kimmel, who will host this year's Oscars ceremony, kicked off "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" by joking that "Boo 2: A Medea Halloween" had been announced as this year's tenth best picture nominee. I can not wait to see which movie accidentally wins Best Picture.

He talked a little about the year's most honored film, Guillermo del Toro's "The Shape of Water", "which racked up 13 nods including Best Picture, Best Director, and Outstanding Achievement in Fish-Penis Design".

When Fallon mentioned the awards show, he acknowledged The Shape of Water, Get Out, and Lady Bird's nomination in the Best Picture category. "Finally Hollywood is recognizing a monster other than Harvey Weinstein", Kimmel said.

But in true late-night TV fashion, Kimmel found a way to sneak in a President Trump joke.

CNN wasn't alone in who had trouble keeping the actual Best Picture nominees straight, as Jimmy Kimmel slipped in an extra one as well. Jordan Peele and Greta Gerwig for Best Director. "Jordan Peele is now going to be invited to a big party thrown by rich white people", Colbert said.

"This year's Oscars are so diverse, they are re-nominating "La La Land" just so it can have its win taken away again", he said.

How will the 2018 Oscars handle the #MeToo movement and the Time's Up initiative? "For instance, the Oscar statue will now be fully clothed". "I hope he's seen 'Get Out'". When he finally did pivot to talking about the Oscar nominations, he clearly had the president on his mind. more specifically, the president's bulk.

"Meryl Streep was nominated for an Academy Award for her performance in The Post", Colbert told viewers.

Noah brought out an "awards expert", in reality Daily Show correspondent Roy Wood Jr., who praised the nominations: "People who are long overlooked are getting their due", he said.
