Late night show host Jimmy Kimmel is set to host the 89th Academy Awards on February 26, and he’s already admitted that he’s going to get political during the biggest night in cinema.
This shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. Hollywood stars have taken every opportunity of this awards season to go after Donald Trump.
“I haven’t decided exactly how much I will dwell on that,” Kimmel told People magazine. “A lot of it depends on what happens that week,” the talk-show host added.
“There are one, sometimes three, new interesting stories coming out of the White House every day it seems,” Kimmel said of his potential source for Oscar material. “So who knows what will be happening? I just hope whatever is happening is light.”
